Shimla Mirchi Panchamrut Recipe | Konkani Capsicum Cashew Peanut Sabzi by Archana’s Kitchen

Amanda M. Rye

  • To begin making Shimla Mirchi Panchamrut Recipe, first prep all the ingredients and keep them ready.

  • The first step is to make the masala.

  • Heat a small pan over medium heat; add the cloves, cinnamon, black pepper, coriander seeds, cumin seeds, methi seeds and roast for a minute until the aromas of the spices come through.

  • Once roasted, add the grated coconut and roast for a minute more and turn off the heat. Allow the mixture to cool a bit.

  • Add the roasted masala into a small jar of the mixer grinder along with the peanuts and tamarind.

  • Blend to make a powder without adding any water. This fresh masala will go over the cooked capsicum mixture. Keep this aside.

  • Into a pressure cooked, add the raw peanuts along with 1/4 cup of water and pressure cook for 2 whistles. After 2 whistles turn the heat to low and simmer for 3 to 4 minutes and turn off the heat.

  • Allow the pressure to release naturally. Once released, open the cooker and keep the cooked peanuts aside. 

  • Heat coconut oil in a pan; add the mustard seeds and methi seeds and allow it to crackle.

  • Once it crackles, add the asafoetida and give it a stir.

  • Next add the cashew nuts and capsicum and sprinkle a little salt and turmeric powder. Give the mixture a stir.

  • Cover the pan and cook the capsicum until it is just about cooked. Take care not to overcook the capsicum and ensure it has a firm texture and is also cooked with a good bite.

  • Once the capsicum has reached that stage, stir in the freshly roasted and ground masala, jaggery and the cooked peanuts into the cashew and capsicum mixture.

  • Give it a stir until all the ingredients are well combined. Check the taste and add more salt if required and stir.

  • Cover the pan and simmer the Shimla Mirchi Panchamrut for another 3 to 4 minutes so the masalas get well absorbed making the sabzi flavourful and tasty.

  • Once done, turn off the heat and transfer the Shimla Mirchi Panchamrut to a serving bowl and serve hot.

  • Serve the delicious Shimla Mirchi Panchamrut with Muga Ambat Recipe , hot rice and phulka for a wholesome meal
