Bharwan Mirchi

Bharwan Mirchi is a stuffed chilli side dish popular in Gujarat and Rajasthan. Here I have tried it with Jalapenos which are stuffed with chickpea flour.
Alternatively you can also use coarsely powdered roasted peanut and slightly roasted chickpea flour as stuffing for the Jalapeno.
