Stuffed Chillies.

If you have been following So-Saree regularly you would know about my undying love for food.
As much as I love food, I hate recipes that are elaborate and time consuming.
I am always up for recipes that are quick, easy to make and do not compromise on taste at all.

So the first recipe that I decided to post on So-Saree, was the most basic Stuffed Chillies. It is soo easy to make that even an 8 year old can make them easily.

Big Green Chillies - 8-10
Grated Fresh Coconut - 2 Cups
Red Chilly Powder - 1 Tbsp (you can adjust it as per your taste)
Cumin Powder -1 Tsp
Lime Juice - 1 Tbsp
Salt to taste
Oil - 1 Tbsp

Cut off the stem of the chillies and slit them vertically, so as to remove their seeds. This variety of green chillies are less hot but I still recommend wearing gloves while cleaning them.
Once done, wash them under running water and squeeze some lime juice inside the slit chillies.
Keep them aside for about 15-20 mins.

 In a dish, mix the grated coconut, cumin powder, red chilly powder and salt, and mix with a spoon.
Adjust the taste of the stuffing by adding the spices of your choice.
Grated Fresh Coconut
Coconut+Chilly Powder+Cumin Powder+Salt
=Filling for Yummy Stuffed Chillies
Now stuff the chillies with this filling.

Place it in a microwave dish and microwave it for about 3 minutes. This will minimize the time needed to stir fry the chillies on the non stick pan.
Once done add some oil to a non stick pan, and place the microwaved chillies on them. Adjust the flame to medium.
Keep turning the chillies so that they get nicely tanned [;)] from all sides. This should not take more than 5 mins.

And we are done. This can be served as a side dish, and can be prepared in no time.
Apologies for the bad presentation, apparently my family was too hungry and upset that I was clicking pics instead of serving them.
 I am hungry already..what about you guys??

P.S. You can follow the same recipe by replacing chillies with ladyfingers and believe me they taste awesome. Just eliminate the lime juice and you are good to go.
