Tamarind Stuffed Spicy Mirich Bajjis

As many have mention the climate is very foggy these days which makes very sick. I just hate the climate here!! Changing frequently shining one day-raining another day..spoiling the moods and plans.We went to a b'day party held in a restaurant recently and there we were served with very crispy and mouth-watering mirich bajji. It was good and very spicy indeed. I could taste tamarind,sesame seed sand peanut crunch stuffed in them. I tried to asking around how to prepare them but was able to get a word out of the waiter there; They simply smiled and say "That's our specialty Madam". One of the guest told me a similar way to prepare them which her MIL recipe.I'm not sure whether she have mentioned all the ingredients but it was really very good. Perfect snack for these foggy climate indeed!!!
