Kapia Chilli Dish

    1 hour 5 minutes

    This is a family recipe from Bulgaria, Dobrich area. I learned it from my mother, and she learned it from her mother. As far as I know it has been passed down the generations for as long as anyone can remember. Ideally the chilli should be grown in the sun by the Black sea, but it has been proven to work with chilli from other places too.

    3. Place the chillies in a bowl with lid and let them rest for about 20 minutes, until it is easy to remove the skin. Peel the skin off and discard. Cut into slices.
