After a short sweet vacation it is very difficult to be back to a routine : -P . Today i am sharing a very tasty and simple authentic Andhra recipe. I used long green chilli(Anaheim) which are very mild, six to eight inches in size,shiny light green in the sesame curry, instead of long green chilli other veggies like capicum (bell pepper), bottle gourd or drumsticks can also be used too with a small variation.
You will be amazed by its health benefits of sesame, there are also lot of home remedies for toothache,burns,dysentry,impotency and mild irregular menstrual cycle with sesame.
This green chilli sesame curry is mild and delicious, and very easy to make.This recipe was taught to me by my mother.
