-Making Stuffing-

Step 1

First, boil the potatoes till they completely tender and cooked thoroughly. Peel and grate the potatoes. Keep aside.

Step 2

Slice off the tops of the capsicum. Remove the seeds. Rinse them in water and pat dry with a kitchen towel. Keep aside.

Step 3

In a small frying pan, heat oil. Fry the cumin first and then add chopped onions.

Step 4

Saute the onions till translucent. Add chopped green chilies.

Step 5

Stir and then add turmeric powder, red chili powder

Step 6

Add the potatoes and mix everything.

Step 7

Saute the potatoes for 2 mins and then add curry powder and lime juice

Step 8

With a spoon or with your hands, stuff the potato mixture in the capsicum.

Step 9

If baking, then brush or rub oil outside the capsicum, before you stuff them with the spiced mashed potatoes. Now you can bake the stuffed capsicum in an oven or saute in a pan.

For Cooking Stuffed Capsicum in A Pan

Step 1

Heat oil in a pan and place the stuffed capsicum in the pan.

Step 2

Cover the pan and allow the stuffed capsicum to cook on a low flame.

Step 3

You will have to check often after every 5 to 6 mins and keep on changing the sides of the capsicum so that all sides are cooked well. Check, turn the sides and cover the pan again.

Step 4

You also have to place the open potato side touching the pan. The capsicum will get golden and wrinkled.

Step 5

Continue to check, change the sides and then cover again till they are cooked well. It took me about 25 minutes to cook these on a low flame.
