Stuffed Capsicum Subzi

Stuffed capsicum Subzi2

Hard work pays off!!

This saying goes right for stuffed capsicum subzi :) Its a long process to make it, but extremely worth the pains taken. The result is a subzi which is so tangy, yummy, crunchy, spicy, good looking :P and so on :) Totally scrumptious :)

After a big break of sickness and vacation, I was longing to get back with a bang!! And this was the dish I thought that could bring me back totally into the cooking spree :)

Its ages since we made stuffed capsicum subzi at home and I was absolutely tempted to make it when my mom reminded me of its taste and colorful cute looks :P It was a total coincidence that my vegetable vendor brought me some small and perfectly apt capsicums the next day and I was on my toes to make it right away :)

Verdict : Absolutely tasty and scrumptious subzi that fits like a glove with chapathi or roti :) **chef recommends :P

Sesame seeds(yellu) - 2 tsp

Method:

Cut out the top portion(stem) of the capsicum and scoop the seeds out cleanly. Apply some salt inside and place them upside down on a plate for a while. Then drop them into a bowl of warm water and leave it alone for 5 mins and take them out.

Boil potatoes and mash them thoroughly. Screw a skewer or knife into the onion and roast them on direct flame for a while until it gets cooked. Once done remove the top most black peel alone. In a pan fry coconut, sesame seeds, cinnamon, clove, and cardamom for just few mins and grind them all together with the roasted onion into a smooth paste.

Take a wok and add few tsps of oil to it and add the ground paste, mashed potatoes, garam masala powder, turmeric powder, chopped chillies and salt to it and cook for few mins.

Now stuff the prepared filling into the capsicums.
