First, boil the potatoes till they completely tender and cooked thoroughly. Peel and grate the potatoes. Keep aside.
Slice off the tops of the capsicum. Remove the seeds. Rinse them in water and pat dry with a kitchen towel. Keep aside.
In a small frying pan, heat oil. Fry the cumin first and then add chopped onions.
Saute the onions till translucent. Add chopped green chilies.
Stir and then add turmeric powder, red chili powder
Add the potatoes and mix everything.
Saute the potatoes for 2 mins and then add curry powder and lime juice
With a spoon or with your hands, stuff the potato mixture in the capsicum.
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
Heat oil in a pan and place the stuffed capsicum in the pan.
Cover the pan and allow the stuffed capsicum to cook on a low flame.
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.
You also have to place the open potato side touching the pan. The capsicum will get golden and wrinkled.
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.
