  1. First wash the peppers under running water then dry them with kitchen paper. There is no need to remove the seeds because as mentioned they are almost completely absent.
  2. In a pan heat the oil with the garlic then add the peppers and about half a glass of water. Leave to cook with the lid on over medium heat for about 20 minutes, adjusting the salt last. If desired, a grind of black pepper also helps to enhance the flavour.
