Banana Peppers curry

I love these Peppers for their refreshing color and flavor.........

Ingredients:

4 banana peppers, 1/2tsp. oil, 1/2tsp.mustard and jeera each, 1 spring curry leaves, 1/4tsp.bengal gram/chana dal, 1/4tsp.coriander seeds, 1/4tsp.bhuna chana, 2-3 whole red chillies(adjust as per spice levels), a pinch turmeric powder, salt to taste.

Method:

  • Dry roast coriander seeds, bhuna chana, chana dal and whole red chillies until they are light golden brown in color, then add coconut and grind them into coarse powder.

Cut banana peppers into 2''pieces, remove the seeds and keep them aside. In a pan heat oil, once it's hot add mustard and jeera, once they start to splutter add curry leaves, banana pepper pieces, salt, turmeric powder, mix well and sprinkle little water, cover with lid and cook for 2min. on medium heat, after 2min. remove the lid and fry for another 2min. or less(the pepper should not loose their crisp) then add the ground powder, mix well and remove from the flame......this will go good with rice or roti.

Yum.These banana peppers are mild and good for these kind of curries. Sometimes, I add pappula podi / koora podi to this.

Dear Prasu
It looks really great.I am getting the aroma. I meticulously read all the spices, I am totally new to Andhra coastal cooking. (I Know few dishes of Hyderabad, and that is very different I understand.)
What is Banana pepper? Are these big peppers less hot ones??
(Now all roads lead to Pesarattu dosa)
