Great as a snack or even added to stews or curries, chilli bites are delicious and easy to make. With a box of chilli bite mix, all you need to add is water and your chosen additional ingredients and then deep fry in oil. The great thing about these snacks is that they can be made in many different ways. Experiment with ingredients to enjoy a wide variety of flavours that will add even more to these tasty, spicy snacks.
From traditional to veggie, here are a few simple ways to add more flavour to chilli bites.
As the name implies, these bites are spicy and full of flavoursome chilli. You can make them even spicier by using finely chopped fresh or dried chilli along with finely chopped onion and garlic. Fresh coriander or coriander seeds can also enhance the flavours of the mix. Mix these added ingredients into the dry mix before you add water.
If you prefer something a little less traditional, you can add some grated cheese to your bites. Cheddar works well to get a good cheesy taste and texture. You can add additional ingredients to your cheesy bites, including spring onion, finely chopped bacon or even corn for something different. As with traditional bites, mix ingredients into the dry mix and then add liquid.
Adding your favourite veggies is yet another way to make delicious bites. Veggies that work well include finely chopped red or green pepper, spring or green onion, grated carrot, finely chopped mushroom, cauliflower, broccoli, leafy greens such as spinach and kale, finely chopped beans or any other vegetable you like. For best results, stick to a few vegetables rather than adding too many. For example, you could use broccoli and kale or peppers and beans. Add these into the dry mix and add water or another liquid such as vegetable stock.
