Stuffed bell pepper recipe, simple and tasty
Ingredients
  • Green bell peppers (shimla mirch, capsicum) 3-4
  • Onions 3
  • Green chillies 3
  • Garlic 4 cloves
  • Coriander leaves, a handful
  • Ginger (optional)
  • Salt as per taste
  • Turmeric powder ¼ tsp
  • Coriander powder 1 tsp
  • Garam masala powder ¼ tsp (optional)
  • Oil for shallow frying
Method
  1. Wash bell peppers thoroughly and slice off their top
  2. Scrap the seeds to get a hollow space for stuffing
  3. Meanwhile peel and grate onion, pound green chillies, coriander leaves, garlic and ginger (optional) in mortar pestle (hamam dasta)
  4. Mix grated onion and pounded mixture, add some salt and dry masalas
  5. Stuff bell peppers with this mixture and  Shallow fry  with minimum oil, on a low flame (Its better to use non stick pan)
  6. Keep on tossing the bell peppers at regular intervals
  7. Cook till stuffing changes its colour
  8. Could be served with daal chaawal or roti
  9. Note:If you prefer crunchy bell peppers, then it would be better to first cook the stuffing,i.e stir fry grated onions along with ginger-garlic and add dry masalas.Then stuff this mixture into bell peppers and cook again on low flame.This way, the bellpeppers will remain crunchy as you won't need to cook it for long coz ; stuffing is already cooked

    The terms “bell pepper”, “pepper” or in Australia and New Zealand “capsicum”, are often used for any of the large bell shaped fruits, regardless of their color. In British English, the fruit is simply referred to as a “pepper”, or additionally by color (as in the term “green pepper”, for example), whereas in many Commonwealth of Nations countries, such as India, Canada, and Malaysia, they are called “bell peppers”.”
