Stuffed Mushroom Bajji/bonda

Long back I have seen this recipe in a TV Show. In that show they stuffed Mushroom with potato curry. I tried that many times but some how i think that filling heavy. So i tried with mixed vegetable curry from that i keep on changing the filling for this bajjis. Once i tried with crumbled paneer and spinach, that taste really great. For todays post i really wanted to make that spinach and paneer stuffing, I did not get spinach so I changed it to capsicum and corn. This combination also taste great. This is one of my favorite snack because they are juicy and flavorfull in side and besan and mushroom gives a nuty flavor to the outer layer. If you make with potato filling that will not give a juicy texture in side and you do not get any crunchy texture in the filling.
                                       Take care when you dip stuffed mushrooms in the chickpea flour mixture. Make sure that batter should coated all over the stuffed mushroom . Otherwise the fill may come out and spoil the oil. When you add salt to the chick pea batter keep in mind that we ass salt in the filling also.Ok lets check the recipe....
