Turmeric - 1/3 tsp
Chilly powder- 1 tsp

Tamarind- a small ball
oil for frying.
Soak and take tamarind pulp and combine with one cup of water and one tsp of salt. ( You can also use lemon juice and salt, but tamarind tastes better). Give lengthwise slit on the long chillies. If you like you can remove the seeds gently without breaking off the stem. Immerse them in the tamarind water for two minutes.
Prepare a batter combining all the dry ingredients to form a dosa batter consistency. Dip chillies in the batter ( squeeze out the tamarind water before dipping) and deep fry in oil till all sides are lightly browned up. Enjoy.
