Stuffed Banana Peppers with Walnut Sesame Powder . Instant Pot – Side for Roti ( Indian Bread)
Each and every post has a story to share. Banana Peppers are must in my grocery list because they are Zero Spicy and my Kids like to eat with their dinner. As I’m cooking regularly in Instant Pot I decided to try Banana Peppers . I didn’t add any water because I don’t want Steamed Peppers but rather roasted one. I stay in Kitchen till I unplug it . I didn’t get any Burnt sign and you won’t see the SILVER BUTTON pops up . Instead I added WASHED PEPPERS to the STEEL POT with OIL . They got soft with water from washed Peppers. I opened the Lid after 5 minutes. Happy to see cooked and Roasted PEPPERS. Thought I will share this recipe with you . I’m sharing stuffing too. Our meal will be incomplete without Rasam or Raita or Pickled Vegetables. They enhance the taste of the meal. For yesterday’s dinner I prepared AMARANTH LEAVES stir fry ( One of our favorite GREEN leafy vegetable) with Stuffed peppers , Blackeyed Beans and Paratha( Indian Bread) . Here is the simple recipe .
