– 15 green chillies, roughly chopped

– 1 tbsp. gram flour or chickpea flour
– ½ tbsp. mango powder

Instructions for Tapori

  • On high heat, flavour up your extra virgin olive oil with your cumin and fennel seeds.
  • Add in your chillies and continue to cook over high heat, you want the chillies to blister and burn the skin a little.
  • Season with salt and turmeric powder.
  • Once the peppers have blistered add in your flour and let it thicken.
  • The last thing is to add in some mango powder.
  • Remove from heat and let it cool, the longer you let it cool the more the flavours will combine so be sure to make this dish well ahead of time.
  • Enjoy David Rocco’s Tapori!
