You know when you got something yummy when you can't stop licking your hands. Stuffed peppers is very popular South Indian snack. It brings back memories for me especially when I was in college and relied on streetside foods quite a bit :)

Stuffed peppers are one of the many streetwise foods that just tickle your taste buds just at the thought of it. One lazy afternoon, I just started craving for them. The next day, anaheim peppers made it to the grocery list and the rest is in the pictures below!

As you all know, I love to make most meals balanced in protein, carbs and good amount of dietary fiber. So I decided to stuff these peppers with some Harissa Bean Wunder Nuggets and a few peppers with Minty Lentil Wunder Nuggets, ground up with sesame seeds. The peppers are breaded in garbanzo (chickpeas) flour which is yet another source of protein. I fried these in avocado oil, which is perfect due to its high smoke point.

Prep the peppers:

  1. Slice the top stem (or leave them intact - your choice) of the peppers
  2. Slit the peppers open just enough to make room for stuffing
  3. Remove the white veins inside, this will reduce the 'heat' from peppers

Prep the batter:

  1. To make 6 peppers, you will need about 2 cups of chickpea flour
  2. 1/2 cup of rice flour for crunch
  3. 2 tsps baking powder
  4. 1 tsp salt
  5. 1/2 tsp cumin powder
  6. 1/2 tsp coriander powder
  7. Mix with a whisk until thick as in pancake batter

 Prep the filling:

  1. Heat up Minty Lentil (or your choice of) Wunder Nuggets in a toaster or conventional oven (about 8 nuggets)
  2. Chop the warm Wunder Nuggets with 1 tbsp of white sesame seeds
  3. Add 1 tbsp of dry mango powder OR the juice of one whole lemon


  1. Stuff the peppers with the filling, make sure to seal the openings with batter
  2. Fry in oil until golden brown
  3. Serve with chopped onions and a dash of lime
