On my usual diet, I don’t get so fired up with chilli spice. On the family diet, we have preferred mild food. Once in a way we do make an exceptional treat. A spicy one to open up our sinuses.
The Mirchi nu sambharao is one I have been tempted to make many times..but put away as it gets too much in the way of a pickle and the low spice Bhavnagari chiilies were for a long time out of my reach. When I found a bunch of green Bullhorn chilli pepper, I was thinking, I could make the sambharao work without all that superkick from the spicy chillies. A win win..perfect.
This time for Chalo Gujarat @ Shhh cooking challenge, partnered up with Archana to cook up a Gujarati delight. The secret ingredients were mustard and green chilli. during our online conversation discussing the ingredients she casually mentioned what comes up in ind is a pickle… This inspired me to turn it around into a thing of delight than just a condiment on the side.
Archana is a versatile blogger The Mad Scientist kitchen and her recipes are unique. Don’t miss to give it a try especially the recipes for old age section… actually love that for myself and kids too.
Sambharo is a quick stirfry of vegetables like cabbage, carrots, raw papaya, etc, flavoured with hing and mustard.
Thr sambharao paired up with rice, creamy khadi and papad was a comforting meal for a busy cold evening and a super quick one.The bullhorn chilli pepper just worked perfectly with my thoughts..green chilli sambharao.
Bullhorn chilli peppers
Bullhorn chilli peppers on the contrary to just being spicy are sweet and mild peppers perfect for frying and salads.
- These are excellent peppers to aid metabolism and thereby weight loss. The CH-19 sweet compound found in these peppers and capsicum peppers mobilise these benefits.
- The vitamin content is easier to use when in fresh form.
- The lutein content has been analysed to help in cataract and eye degeneration in older age group.
Now isn’t this a great one to search out for.
