Last week my best friend cum ex-colleague visited me. Both of us met for lunch and we decided to binge on Andhra meals. There was loads of tasty and yummy stuff to eat on my plate but the item that stole my heart was a kind of special fried chilly. When I enquired about it, my friend told me that it’s very popular in south India and every other house prepares it. I came back home and did a Google search and found out its different names but the recipe remains the same. It is called taaka mirsang in Goa, majjige menasu in Karnataka, majjige balaka in Mangalore and sandgi mirchi in Maharashtra. I started with my preparation last week and its ready today. Wow!! I’m excited to have it tomorrow with rice during lunch.
