Banana Chilly Curry / Malu Miris

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
Onion -1 
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
Sugar -1/2teaspoon

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. 
Recipe Source : HERE , As the author quotes, "///Banana chilli or pepper is called malu miris in Singhalese because ‘malu’ means cooking/side dish and ‘miris’ mean chilli, so it’s translates to the ‘cooking chilli’. ///" :)

 I have altered the recipe a little bit according to my convenience. :)
