I bought some banana peppers for making Milagai Bajji and had a few left. One of my blogger friend, also my lovable Akka suggested this Sri Lankan recipe. Its so quick and delicious. Give it a try! :)
Banana peppers/ Bajji milagai - 6
Garlic - 2 cloves
Few curry leaves
Chilli Flakes - 21/2 teaspoons (adjust to taste)
Turmeric powder - 1/8teaspoon
Tamarind paste - 1/2tablespoon (or) Thick tamarind water - 3tablespoons
Wash, pat dry the chillies and slice them.
Slice the onions thinly.
Combine the chillies, onion, curry leaves and turmeric in a bowl.
Heat oil in a pan, add the chilli flakes and crushed garlic.
Saute for 30 seconds, add the chillies -onion-curry leaves and turmeric. Add the thick tamarind extract too.
Add enough salt and sugar, toss everything well. Close the pan with a lid and cook on medium heat for 6-8 minutes or until the peppers are cooked.
Serve as a side dish for rice or roti. Personally this goes well with rice and plain dal.
