Banana pepper curry

So, finally here is the banana pepper curry recipe. Infact, these peppers were labeled as Hot Fryer Peppers at our local farmers' market. When I checked, they said these are also called as banana peppers. So, you can pretty much use any pepper/chilli that resembles the banana pepper. I wanted to make a rich gravy curry out of these peppers but ended up making a dry curry (getting more health conscious of late).

Ingredients5 or 6 banana peppers
1 medium potato
1 medium onion
1 tsp red chilli powder (adjust accordingly as the peppers are quite hot)
A pinch of turmeric
1 tsp of ICP1/2 tsp of mustard
1/2 tsp of jeera
Salt to taste
Oil as needed

Method1. Chop the banana peppers, potato and onions.
2. Pour oil in a pan and season with mustard and jeera.
3. Add the onions and sauté until transparent.
4. Add the peppers, potato, turmeric, red chilli powder, ICP and salt and cook till the vegetable get tender.
Serve with rice or roti.

Serving size - 1/2 cup
Number of servings – 10
