Pilipili hoho Stir fry

There are ingredients in every culture that would be added in almost every recipe. One of those ingredients for Tanzanians is, sweet peppers, which in Swahili is pilipili hoho. Pilipili hoho add a good flavor in any stew and we Tanzanians love sweet peppers in our stews.
I do like to stir fry sweet peppers. This is fast for a busy mother. Use this recipe as a side dish with anything. The best part of this recipes is; no measuring!
Use equal amounts of Green, Red and yellow / golden peppers. For us who live in America, red and yellow peppers can be a bit expensive sometimes, so just use only green peppers.

  • 1 green pepper
  • 1 red pepper
  • 1 yellow pepper
  • 1 large onion
  • Salt
  • Olive /canola oil
  1. Cut the peppers in thin ling slices
  2. Cut the onion into thin long slices.
  3. Heat the oil in a pan.
  4. On high heat, add the rest of the ingredients, stir until are cooked
  5. Do not cook them until soft or they won’t taste very nice.
  6. Serve hot.
  7. That is it. You can add herbs and sesame seeds if you want, but this recipe taste good just as it is.

    i’m continually wandering about the internet just about all of the working day which means I possess a tendency to peruse a bunch, which is not always a beneficial factor as the majority of the web sites I see are made up of unnecessary nonsense copied from several other web pages a trillion times, on the other hand I have to give you credit this webpage is definitely enjoyable and even delivers a lot of original material, so kudos for helping to stop the fad of just copying other folks’ blogs, in case you ever want to have fun with playing a couple of hands of zynga poker together with me just shout out – you have my e-mail :)

    Yes it is true, I have noticed that hoho is widely used in Tanzania nowadays, I always enjoy to be home in Tanzania and see the changes that we have in our food preparations.

    Kamala, I do not eat meat as much too, but i am not a vegetarian. Thanks for visiting, I am planning to add more vegetarian dishes soon.
