What do I make out of so many mini peppers from whole sale ~ Stuffed Mini Peppers
Costco is a whole sale supermarket in the US where you get everything in bulk or huge quantities. It works out to be cheaper if you can use all of the vegetables and other stuff that you buy there because they really come in x-large size! Fortunately I have family members that are living with me now so we do take advantage of the fresh produce and many groceries at a good price. This is where I bought mini peppers. They are basically mini bell peppers; at least that is what the bag says. I used some of them in pastas, salads and the rest I stuffed with aloo. Here is the recipe.
Recipe: (For approx. 4 people)
Mini peppers 10
Aloo cooked and mashed
Green chili as per taste finely chopped
Red chili powder as per taste
Salt per taste
1 – 2 tsp Dhania powder
1/2 tsp garam masala powder (optional)
A few sprigs of cilantro finely chopped
Lime or lemon juice as per taste
2 tsp oil
Slit the peppers lengthwise for stuffing. Heat oil in a pan, add the spices and mix, then add the mashed aloo, mix well. Taste and adjust seasonings. Remove the mixture, add some cilantro, mix and set aside. Now, fill the peppers with the aloo mixture. In the same pan, add a little more oil and place these peppers and let it cook. Turn every side every few minutes, cover it with a little in between each turn. This will make the peppers cook as well as give that roasted flavor. Garnish with cilantro. You can eat it with roti or as a chaat (snack) like I did. Enjoy.
