In Maharashtra and Goa, pakoras are known as bhajiyas/bhajji/bajji. Green chillies which are used for making this pakoda are bigger in size, and they are not spicy as their smaller counterparts. One can use small green chillies also, but they would turn out to be too hot and spicy. These green chillies have a light green color and are known as bhaji/bhajji/bhajiya chillies. You can easily get these chillies in Vegetable selling vendors.
