Talelu Marchu (Fried Green Chile Pepper)

Author Notes: Shallow-fried green chile peppers, smothered in salt post-frying, give a hot kick to a Gujarati meal. But salt tempers the heat.Annada Rathi

Serves: 2

  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 4 green chile peppers, preferably long green chiles with thin skin
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  1. Heat oil in a skillet. Use a knife to cut a slit along the length of the pepper.
  2. Shallow-fry the peppers till their skin becomes pale.
  3. Remove the peppers to a paper napkin to wick the excess oil.
  4. Pour salt on a flat plate and roll the peppers in salt. Dust to remove the excess.
  5. Serve with any Indian meal or a thali.
