Stuffed Capsicum (GRILLED)

Stuffed capsicum

Baking or grilling has always been my preferred mode of cooking since we can churn out the best foods with minimum oil . This variation of "Stuffed Capsicum" which I am sharing here today is the grilled version , but, it can also be done by deep frying .  

  • Four to five capsicums ( medium size) 
Ingredient for stuffing :
  • Cauliflower - 200 grams ( grated) 
  • Paneer - 200 grams 
  • Tomato - 2 medium size ( finely chopped) 
  • 3 boiled potato
  • coriander leaves (chopped) 
  • cumin powder  - one tea-spoon 
  • coriander powder - two tea-spoons 
  • chili powder - one tea-spoon
  • Kasturi Methi powder - one tea-spoon
  • Garam-Masala Powder - one tea spoon
  • Turmeric powder - one tea-spoon
  • Cumin seed - one tea -spoon 
  • Salt - as per taste
  • Green chilies - two ( finely chopped) 
Ingredients for marination :
  • Curd - two tea-spoon
  • gram flour ( Beasn) -  two  tea-spoon
  • Salt - one pinch
  • Chili powder - half tea-spoon
  • cumin powder - half tea-spoon

With a very sharp knife make a cut around the stock of the capsicum

Pierce it out delicately taking care not to cut the body of the capsicum 

This is how it has to be taken out 

With the help or finger or back of a spoon  , scoop out the seeds and any pulp inside the capsicum 
My ingredients for the stuffing - Potatoes , and....

..the rest of the ingredients for the stuffing .
The spices for the stuffing 

Add oil in a pan and add the cumin seeds

Once the cumin splutters, add in the grated cauliflowers, and sortie for 3  minutes 

Now, add in the tomatoes , and all the spices ,salt and turmeric.Fry till raw smell of spices and tomato is gone.

Time for the potatoes and the Paneer with the green chilies ,mix well ,fry for 2 mins,then add the coriander leaves

Mix all the ingredients of the marinade and make a smooth paste and lightly coat all the capsicum with it , refrigerate for two hours .

After two hours, fill in the stuffing - taking care to fill-in the stuffing to all the corners of the capsicum . 

Brush lightly with oil and grill at 250 degree centigrade in a pre-heated oven till the capsicums leave out water and look cooked ( approximately for 20 minutes ) . 

They should look like this once out of the oven.

Ready to serve with Pulao or Roti 

 Note : When you plan to make stuffed capsicum , choose the capsicum carefully , taking care to see that they sit in a stable position.
