Hey Walchit.. I see your friend is sun drying his peppers whole pod. I tried doing that with my Bhuts and the result was them getting discolored.

I took the advice from the fellow pepper heads and made slits in them and now they are drying properly.

 

How did your friend get the whole peppers to dry without getting discolored?  Also, I like his setup to dry the peppers in Sun.

To the Kratky naysayers and non-believers, my Kratky plants are doing well![emoji13]

Love how your pepper plant looks. Did you prune all the leaves from the bottom of the plant?

#1573942 My Clog - Indian and Beyond

Posted by saiias on 07 August 2018 - 01:52 PM

I was banished from our kitchen for being untidy :)

Wife is the law...

 

Anyways, got into her good grace again and here I am with another recipe.

This one is specially for nmlarson and muckyai.

 

Sweet spicy and savory bitter gourd curry

 

Ingredients:

  • 3 good sized bitter gourds (bitter melons)
  • 10 curry leaves
  • 2 dried red chilies 
  • a pinch of cumin seeds
  • a pinch of mustard seeds
  • 1 tsp chana dal
  • 1 large Onion finely chopped
  • chopped spicy peppers (according to your taste) 
  • 1 tsp salt
  • a pinch of turmeric
  • a pinch of masala/curry powder
  • 2 tsp dried coconut powder
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • half a cup of oil.

Cooking:

  • Take 3 good sized bitter gourds ( you can find them in any Indian grocery store) 

1.jpg

  • Wash them with salt water. roughly scrape off the ridges from the skin as shown. This will help in reducing the bitter taste.

2.jpg

 

  • Chop them into thin rings or semi circles.

 

  • In a shallow pan, take oil just enough to shallow fry the bitter guard pieces 

3.jpg

 

  • Fry till the pieces look crispy enough.

5.jpg

 

  • Remove the pieces from the oil and set them aside.
  • In the remaining oil in the same pan ( add oil if necessary), fry cumin seeds, mustard seeds, chana dal and dried chilies on low flame till the mustard seeds start to splutter. Add curry leaf and fry for half a minute. 

6.jpg

 

  • Add chopped onions and chopped spicy peppers to the pan. Turn the heat to medium flame.

7.jpg

 

  • Add salt and turmeric and masala/curry powder. Cook till onions turn golden brown (translucent).

8.jpg

 

  • Once onions are cooked, add dried coconut powder 

9.jpg

 

  • Cook for 2 more minutes or till the the rawness is gone from the coconut powder 

10.jpg

 

  • Add the fried bitter guard pieces back to pan.

11.jpg

 

  • Mix well and cook for 5 min. Add sugar, reduce the flame and cook for 3 more minutes on low flame. 

Sweet,Spicy,Savory and a very healthy bitter gourd curry is ready.

Where's the good curry base recipes? I love me some Currys and all my curries I've made were from powders or pastes from the grocery stores which I know wouldn't even hold a candle to all of our fresh peppers we all got!
