Spicy Green pepper / chilly stir fry....yet not spicy enough!!

My green pepper plants have given me lots of peppers this year. I am exactly not sure what kind of peppers or chillies they...They look like serrano pepper but aren't spicy as serranos!!
Anyways...I love to cook with non-spicy chillies. The best substitute is bell pepper which somewhat has the same flavor, but not so similar.
I love the smell and spiciness when cooked only eat with hot rice...its super yummy!
Made it with the few chillies which I have in my fridge (I have a few more, for next time)...I didn't know how spicy they would be so only used half....they weren't spicy at all....and so loved it!
Its a simple stir fry...always choose chillies which are not very spicy, you wouldn't want to fly thru the roof!!!!!!!
And if you are like chilli stir fry, go ahead and try it...its fun!!
I didn't de-seed the chillie, but if you wish, you can go straight ahead!


about 10 non- spicy green pepper / chillies, chopped
half an onion, chopped

1 tbsp oil
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
1/2 tsp jeera, cumin seeds
1/4 tsp turmeric
Coriander leaves, chopped for garnish
salt to taste


In a Kadai or a pan, heat oil. Temper the mustard seeds and cumin seeds till they splutter. Add the chopped onion and saute till translucent. Add the chopped green chilies / pepper. Add the salt and turmeric and saute till cooked, not mushy tho!!

Serve with hot steaming rice....Enjoy!!!
