Stuffed Capsicums



After a break i'm doing this post. This wasn't a intentional break, but we did shifted our house 2 weeks back, and somehow i wasn't able to browse from my new home. 1 week i was busy packing and unpacking, and now my laptop is setup in the same room ,where my kids take their afternoon nap, my only time for browsing. And they do "Sleep like a baby".(i always wonder why that mattress companies says 'like a baby', though babies are so notorious sleepers,may be the hours..).

Now coming to these Stuffed Peppers, there are a lot of ways to make these stuffed chillies, you may either fill them with potatoes(as i did), or gramflour or mixed vegetables,or any non veg stuffing, anything as par your taste. For the gramflour filling you can check stuffed chillies, which i posted earlier. Also as i didn't had oven so i made them on stove top, but doing in oven is better and easier.

Ingredients:

4 small sized green peppers
4 potatoes bolied n mashed
1 cup chopped mix vegetables
3 tbsp cooking oil
3/4 tsp cumin seeds
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 large onion finely chopped
1 green chilli finely chopped
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
2 tsp coriander powder
1/2 tsp cumin powder
1/2 tsp garam masala
1/2 tsp raw mango powder
Salt to taste

Method:

Wash the green peppers well and pat dry with paper towel. Cut the top off about 1/2" from where the stem is attached. Deseed and set aside.
Trim bottoms very slightly (do not make a hole) so as the peppers can stand up. Put all cleaned peppers in hot water till half done,drain and set aside for later use.
Heat 3 tbsps of cooking oil, add the cumin seeds. Now add the green chillies and garlic and fry till done.
Add the onion and fry till soft. Then add all finely chopped mixed veggies(i used carrots,peas,corn,beans, n deseeded capsicums) and cook till soft.
Now add all the powdered spices and fry for about a minute.
Finally add the mashed potato and mix well to blend with all the spices. Cook for 2 minutes. Turn off the fire, add salt to taste and mix well.
Now stuff each pepper fully with the mashed potato mix. Press down and top up to ensure they are well filled.
Heat 1 tbsp cooking oil in a shallow pan on a low flame. When hot add the peppers (standing up) and fry covered till done.
Gently turn the peppers all around and fry till golden. Turn off fire.
Garnish with grated cheese on top or even paneer.

Tip:
Its easier if after stuffing ,grate chesse on top, and bake them in the oven.
You also slit the chillies (if they are big), from the centre and cut them into 2 halves.

This looks fabulous! I've tried many versions of stuffed peppers from many countries ... now I can't wait to try this one. This is the first one, I might add, that uses potatoes instead of a rice mixture. That should give it a completely unique taste and texture.

Thank you for sharing your recipes. I hope you don't mind if I follow this blog!

Take Care!
