If you have been to India or are of Indian origin you’ll know how a cold winter/rainy day can be transformed if there are some great bhajjis to go with some hot Indian tea.India is such a diverse country with great foods all around that I had to bring that to life in my blog. The recipe below comes from Rajasthan;this mirchi vada has a delicious mashed potato stuffing which makes it unique,more flavourful & filling & reduces the heat.This is all about having that array of flavours & texture when you take the first bite & sip that spiced tea!
