Tea-Time Snack – Golden Stuffed Chilies

Stuffed Chilies Recipe

Indian food illuminates its culture through its appearance partnering with its taste and smell. When you look at its color, you’ll largely notice ruby tone richness in curries, rice variants, barbeque or anything that is being served. If in case, the food misses the hint of redness – it is even out by the addition of green chilies in the form of a paste or uncut. Red or green pepper has always been the hero of all flavoring in Indian viands. Nothing goes out humdrum with the addition of peppers as chilies add life to Indian food. We tend to concoct and intensify Italian or Chinese food recipes with our desi touch by adding extra spice to the original dish. We always consider to carry tabasco sauce in our purse to quell the shock of bland food being served elsewhere outside India!

Today’s recipe is exactly what everyone’s taste buds rejoice so I encourage you to try this recipe once, it has a less chance of spice which makes it a better deal for all age groups and also for all my wonderful readers. You will not feel the ouch moment while you nibble on as they are bathed well in vinegar. This recipe is cheesy and crispy with tender chicken filling. They are so easy, fun to make and amazing snack idea. You can enjoy it with ketchup or mayonnaise to enhance its overall taste. If you want to feel the extra punch of chilies – avoid scooping its seeds out or else for mild taste - simply deseed the bullet peppers, dip in vinegar, stuff the elements and enjoy the crispiness of chilies. I have also shared the recipe of Stuffed Bell Peppers if you are looking for veg version.

The conclusion of this recipe is exactly the same like we tried in one of the food outlets in our vlog – you can check our vlog for a closer look - Youtube Video.
