Bharwa mirchi, also known as stuffed chili peppers, is a spicy and flavorful Indian dish where green chili peppers are stuffed with a tangy and spicy filling. It makes for a delicious accompaniment or side dish. Here's a recipe for bharwa mirchi:
- 6-8 large green chili peppers (such as Bhavnagri, banana peppers, or jalapenos)
- 1 cup besan (gram flour)
- 2 tablespoons oil
- 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
- 1 teaspoon fennel seeds
- 1 teaspoon coriander powder
- 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
- 1/2 teaspoon red chili powder (adjust to your spice preference)
- 1/2 teaspoon amchur (dried mango) powder
- Salt to taste
- Fresh coriander leaves, chopped (for garnishing)
- Wash the green chili peppers and pat them dry. Slit each chili pepper lengthwise, keeping the stems intact. Remove the seeds if you prefer a milder heat.
- Heat oil in a pan over medium heat.
- Add cumin seeds and fennel seeds to the pan. Let them splutter.
- Add besan (gram flour) to the pan and roast it on low heat until it turns golden brown and gives off a nutty aroma. Stir continuously to prevent burning.
- Add coriander powder, turmeric powder, red chili powder, amchur powder, and salt to the pan. Mix well and cook the spices for a minute to enhance their flavors. Remove from heat and let the filling cool.
- Take a portion of the cooled filling and stuff it into each slit chili pepper, pressing gently to ensure it stays in place. Repeat the process with the remaining chili peppers.
- Heat oil in a non-stick pan over medium heat.
- Place the stuffed chili peppers in the pan and cook them on low heat, covered, for about 5-7 minutes or until they become tender and the filling is cooked. Flip them occasionally to ensure even cooking.
- Once the chili peppers are cooked, remove them from the pan and garnish with freshly chopped coriander leaves.
Serve the bharwa mirchi as a side dish with roti, paratha, or rice. It adds a spicy and flavorful kick to your meal. Enjoy the tantalizing flavors of this stuffed chili pepper dish!
