Sweet Pepper Subji

 

As I was walking around the farmers market, I saw a pile of these fresh green peppers. At first I thought it must be a variety of chili peppers, hot kind. But I saw folks grabbing bag fulls of it. Puzzled, I asked a lady what she makes it. I thought maybe she preserved it in some way. But she said she cooks it like other veggies in asian style. I asked her if it was not spicy. And she replied no, its sweet. So I had to grab some and try it out.

It was very yummy indeed, and no heat. And I think they are called Green Italian Sweet Pepper.

What you’ll need:

  • Sweet Green Peppers
  • Cumin Seeds – 2 tsp
  • Mustard Seeds – 2 tsp
  • Methi Seeds – 1 tsp
  • Coriander Seeds – 2 tsp
  • Red Chilies – 2
  • Hemp Seeds – 4 to 5 tbsp
  • Turmeric Powder – 1 tsp
  • Salt to taste

Note: As an alternate to Hemp Seeds, Peanuts, Coconut or Cashews could be used as well.

Method:

1. Wash and chop the peppers. I almost forgot to take a pic of the peppers until the last few were left. You can see how it looks.
