Some amazing tips and variations to make your best Besan Mirchi Ke Tipore at home:
To make the lesser oil version of this recipe, I have dry roasted besan for this recipe. There is another version of besan mirchi ke tipore where you first add whole spices and then roast besan directly in the tempered oil. If you want to try that version, then skip the dry roasting part. And make sure to increase the amount of oil if you want to roast besan in oil.
I used small and thinner green chilies which are a bit hotter in taste. To make them less hot, remove the seeds, rinse under cold running water and let them dry completely.
For this recipe, you can replace green chilies with a long mild version of chilies like serrano peppers, jalapeño peppers, or banana peppers. You can also use chopped capsicum/bell peppers.
I have used Kashmiri red chili powder here. You can use any other chili powder, or can completely omit it.
This stays fresh for 5-6 days when stored in an airtight in the refrigerator.
The addition of sugar is entirely optional, but I would recommend adding it because the addition of sugar lends a nice slightly sweet flavor to this recipe.
Dried mango powder can be replaced with 1 tablespoon of freshly squeezed lemon juice.
If you want slight nutty texture, then you can also add some roasted, husked and coarsely ground peanuts along with roasted besan.
You can also add roasted desiccated coconut or powdered coconut to this recipe.
This recipe can last longer and can also be packed for road trips. If you want to make it for your road trips, then you need to increase the amount of oil, and, avoid any water.
