Rajma masala was one of the first recipes I had posted 2 years ago when I started FOI. A super yummy gravy recipe that goes well with roti or chawal.

The answer to that boredom is this street style rajma sandwich with leftover rajma masala.
Last year when I was travelling, in my flight lunch box I had rajma masala and some bread on the side. That’s where the idea of this street style rajma sandwich dawned upon me.

Hot, spicy, best snack to munch on in winters, mirchi bajji
01/22/2018 9:31:33 PM vindhyadesai
When it’s raining or in the cold winter months there is always a need of a nice snack to munch on. Along with your favourite hot beverage like chai or coffee, imagine eating spicy mirchi bajji. Makes you drool, isn’t it? Unlike many other recipes this takes only a few minutes to prepare. A few mirchi (fat green chillies) is all you need. Other ingredients are basic and you can find them on your shelf.
All you have to do is, de-seed the chillies, quickly make the batter, dip and fry. A plateful of hot mirchi bajji gets ready in almost a jiffy. I sometimes wonder if making tea or coffee takes longer:). But ensure to de-seed the chillies especially if children are eating. Along with these mirchi bajji I like to make a few aloo bajji as well to counter the heat of the mirchi bajji. ... “Mirchi Bajji | Menasinakayi Bajji | Snack Recipes”
