Simple Stuffed Anaheim Chilies

Hope you all had a wonderful long weekend (It was the Independence day weekend here in USA).  We went to San Diego, CA to cool off from Arizona heat.  Had a wonderful time with family and got to meet a sweet little 4 day old angel of a dear friend.  When you can carry that small bundle of joy, you realise how soon your angel grew up!! I miss being able to carry her and walk around...

I need to get back to blogging regularly. Will start with this simple recipe for stuffed Anaheim chilies.

  • Anaheim Chilies - about 8-10 medium sized.  You can substitute this with any other kind of chilies that can be stuffed.
  • Besan (Chick pea flour) - 1 cup
  • Sambar/Curry Powder - 1 table spoon
  • Cumin powder - 1/2 tea spoon
  • Coriander powder - 1 tea spoon
  • Salt - 1 table spoon
  • Turmeric - 1 tea spoon
  • Amchur/Raw Mango powder - 1 table spoon
  • Olive oil - 2-3 table spoons

Slit the Chilies and remove seeds using a small spoon.  Mix all the above ingredients (except Chilies) in a small bowl.  Stuff the Chilies with this mixture (it takes about 1 table spoon each).  Now to a pan on medium heat, add Olive oil.  Place these stuffed chilies in the pan.  Now, add about a table spoon of water to each Chilies in the slit.  Cover the pan and let the Chilies cook on low heat for about 15 minutes until they are a little softer but still has a little crunch.  Now, open the pan and turn the heat to medium and let the Chilies brown a little.  Take the pan aside and the stuffed chilies are ready to be served.  This can be served with rice and dal, Chapati, Roti, etc.  My husband loves it with Pav (kind of Indian bread) in Vada pav style.
