For capsicum lovers like me, anything with capsicum will taste good. One of my fav capsicum dish is Stuffed Capsicum. Different kind of stuffing we can make for this, like potato, besan flour, bread, etc. My mom and aunt will use the coarse masala powder prepared using chana dal. It tastes awesome with both chapathi and rice.


Preparation Time: 40 minutes
Servings: 2

Ingredients:
Medium size capsicum - 2
Chana dal - 4 tbsp
Dry red chillies - 4 (adjust according to taste)
Cloves - 3
Cinnamon - 1 small piece
Coriander seeds - 1 1/2 tbsp
Cumin seeds - 1/4 tbsp
Mustard seeds - 1/4 tbsp
Pinch of asafoetida
Pinch of turmeric
2 - 3 large spoonful of oil
Salt
Amchur powder

Method:
Dry roast all the spices and make a coarse powder. Add salt and amchur powder to taste.
Make a round hole on the top of capsicum by removing the stem. Remove the seeds if any, inside the capsicum.


Fill the capsicum with masala powder and close the hole with the stem.
Heat the oil in a heavy bottom pan. Once the oil is moderately hot, put the capsicum in the oil for cooking. 
Pour 1 - 2 spoons of oil on the top of the capsicum and let the oil go inside the capsicum.
Close the lid and cook the capsicum. Turn the capsicum few times occasionally to cook from all the sides.
Be careful while opening the lid because oil will be spluttering because of the water content in the capsicum.
Once the capsicum is cooked fully, take it from the oil and serve with chapathi or rice.    


Tips:
  • Its better to use medium or small size capsicum for stuffing. It makes them easy to cook.
