Banana peppers or Malu miris as we call in Sri Lanka is another type of capsicum.I love its taste.Unfortunately it is not very common in Singapore.But when we need the taste,we visit ‘Little India’ where we can find Sri Lankan & Indian food.
I am really happy after a visit to Little India.One thing is I can taste ‘Dosei’ which is one of my favourite Indian food.The other thing is my kitchen will be full of vegetables which I love to eat in Sri Lanka.

We use this Capsicum variety in many dishes & stuffed capsicum is one of them.

This is good as an apetizer also good with rice & curry.
