Green chilli pakora is a popular Punjabi side dish that is prepared with spices and green chillies. It's not made with the regular hot peppers, instead it uses the thick and long green peppers that are tolerably spicy. These chilli peppers will be stuffed with a mixture of spices and then deep fried till crisp. You can also serve them as a snack with Indian chutneys like mint chutney, tamarind chutney, or even tomato sauce.

Learn how to make pudina/mint chutney at home.

These chilli pakoras are very delicious and fairly simple to prepare so do give them a try. I would love to have your feedback.

      When I used to love in Rajasthan, I used to eat it a lot. Most of the tuck shop sell it. Not so common in Punjab though.

      Peggy, jalapenos are appreciably hot. If you can handle them these are child's play being very mild. You are lucky to be growing them as well the regular peppers.

      Thank you.

      manatita these chillies are very mild though they are called chillies. If you wish you may remove the seeds to make them still milder. Thank you and you too have a wonderful weekend.

      This is a recipe my family will love. I'm going to try this next week. I don't own a kadahi. Will a deep frying pan work?

      I really don't get on with chilli. Too hot for me. But they look lovely. Perhaps I can have a medium spiced. Lol. I do eat pakoras though. Have a great weekend!

      These sound good. Over here we quite often see stuffed jalapeno peppers and I enjoy eating them. I grow jalapeno peppers as well as regular green peppers in my garden. My husband and I both enjoy eating spicy foods. Thanks for your recipe.
