It's been raining past few days in bay area. During this kind of weather I always feel like eating something spicy and deep fried. Decided to make Mirchi Bajji but wanted to try baked version of stuffed Jalapenos instead of deep fry version. First time i had these stuffed jalapenos are at my friend Shilpa's place. She made two varieties one is cream cheese filling another one potato filling. My favorite one is potato filling.
Here is my version of Stuffed Jalapenos for those who wants to eat spicy.
2 medium sized potatos
4tbsp grated raw mango
1/2 onion finely chopped
chopped cilantro leaves for garnish
red chili powder (If you want more spicy which I do ;) )
Pre heat oven to 400 F
Slit Jalapenos length wise and remove seeds to shape like a boat. Or Cut Jalapenos into half, length wise and remove seeds.
Boil potatoes and mash with potato masher.
Combine chopped onions, mashed potatoes, grated raw mango, salt, chili powder(optional). Taste and adjust spices.
Stuff jalapenos with the potato mix and bake for 15 to 18 mts till peppers are cooked. (Hint: peppers will turn little bit brown color.)
Remove from oven sprinkle lemon juice, chat masala and garnish with cilantro and serve.
If you are spicy lover like me cannot stop with 1.
