Stuffed Capsicum


Every timeI find baby capsicums in the market I pick them up specially for this dish. If you don’t find baby capsicums you can try slitting medium-sized capsicums into two halves and filling them up. You can also try making this same dish with Big green chillies instead of capsicums.

Ingredients :

  • 6 baby capsicums
  • 1 large potato, boiled
  • 3 onions
  • 1/2 teaspoon Haldi powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Mirchi powder
  • 1 teaspoon Dhania powder
  • 2 tablespoons Besan
  • Juice of 1/2 a lemon

Procedure :

  1. Grate onions. Heat about 2 tablespoons of oil, fry onions well.
  2. When onions turn glossy add haldi powder, mirchi powder, dhania powder, besan and salt. Fry further till onion turns completely brown.
  3. Mash in the boiled potato, add a pinch of salt and mix well. Set this mixture aside to cool.
  4. Remove stems of the baby capsicums and shell out the seeds from within.
  5. Stuff the baby capsicums with previously prepared onion masala.
  6. Fry the stuffed capsicums in about 2 tablespoons of oil. Once capsicum appears done, turn off the heat and serve hot with rotis.
