Gujarati Series (Winter Warmers):Chili Pepper-Peanut Curry


One of the best things about the coming winter months are the warm and comforting foods that go with it......one such favorite is this recipe, peppers and peanuts cooked with coconut and sesame seeds....they just seem to warm you up from the inside out. This recipe keeps for many weeks in the refrigerator. Just heat as much as you need for a nice accompaniment to your meal.

You will need:

  • 7-9: Long Chili Peppers....look for the Mild variety
  • 1 cup Peanuts - boiled in salted water
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut
  • 2 tbsp- Sesame Seeds
  • 1 small piece of tamarind with its juice extracted
  • 1 tbsp: Oil, 1
  • tsp: Cumin seeds
  • Salt and Jaggery to taste
Boil the Peanuts in a little salted water and keep aside. Shred the coconut and cut the chilies. In a large stir fry pan, heat the oil and the cumin seeds. Add the sesame seeds and the coconut and toast till slightly browned. Add the chilies, salt, jaggery and some tamarind juice. Stir and cook for 5-7 minutes. Add the peanuts at this time and cook until the oil starts to leave the sides of the pan. Serve hot with some chapatis.

Enjoy!
