Chilli Bites

chilli_boxYes, this is another out-of-the-box test. While I was walking around at the Good Food & Wine Show, Osman’s Spices had some chilli bites already prepared – it was left for us to try. I was craving something savoury, so I tried one. It was really good. I wanted to buy a box right there but they weren’t selling them (not a smart move).

While I was at the Indian spice shop, same place I picked up the tandoori spice, I saw these chilli bites.

It was not what I was after – they didnt have the Osman’s brand, so I went ahead and bought these. I thought its a good week for trial…. and maybe error 😉

I added a chopped onion, grated potato, a green chilli, and water. I ended up adding too much water, so I added some plain white flour into it, to get the right consistency.

I fried them – they took 2 minutes per batch. Not bad.

The verdict: I enjoyed them – savouries always go down well with me.
He said: Too oily (he does not eat samoosa’s for the same reason) – they are fried in deep oil
Perfect for: unexpected guests coming over; afternoon weekend snack or when you have an Indian or savoury craving.
