Stuffed Chillies with Peanuts & Potato

Stuffed vegetables are my personnal favourite, whenever i get a chance to make i wont hesitate a second to make some. Its been a while i had some stuffed vegetables, and i have been looking for a chance to make some stuffed chillies especially with potatoes. I have been challenged with two incredible ingredients by Sathya Priya of My Kitchen Odyssey for this month's Shhhh Cooking Secretly Challenge started by me few months back.Every month i'll combine a pair with the members, then later we secretly discuss with our pair to exchange two secret ingredients among us, finally we cook with those secret ingredients which we will post on next month between 16-18th during every month. Whoever finished cooking with their secret ingredients shares their picture among the group members befor the revealing date.Obviously we are having loads of fun by guessing the ingredients and have real fun with the members. Also this group brings out the creativity from the members since the two ingredients given by the members will definitely pull you to dish out interesting dishes.

Stuffed Chillies with peanut and potato

Sathya gave me chillies and peanuts as secret ingredients, however the first recipe came to my mind is Hyderabadi mirchi ka salan then somehow i felt like making a different dish and opted for this alluring,spicy and very delicious stuffed chillies aka stuffed peppers. Instead of making a dry stuffing with peanuts, i prepared a quick stuffing with cooked and mashed potatoes along with crushed peanuts, the addition of peanuts makes this stuffing more crunchy and nutty. Take care to remove the seeds from chillies carefully else your stuffed chillies will be more spicy. I used long green chillies, you can make the same stuffed chillies just with bellpeppers. We simply loved this stuffed peppers, thanks to Sathya sis for giving me this interesting ingredients.
