After cleaning the Bell Pepper

I have always wanted to make Stuffed Veg (or Non-Veg) dishes. Somehow I either used to forget or didnt have the ingredients. This time I had some bell peppers handy and I was getting bored of using them in rice dishes and other gravy dishes. This time my memory and ingredients were at the same place at the same time hehe . Hence I decided to make stuffed Bell pepper. You can also use Brinjal in place of Bell Pepper.


Bell Pepper or Capscicum - 2 nos
Parmesan cheese: 4 tablespoons


Oil for sauting
Garlic and Ginger grated : 2 tablespoons
Curry leaves sliced into very thin pieces
Green chili minced : 2 teaspoon (according to your taste)
Tomato cut finely : one tomato
Onion cut into very small pieces: 1 large onion
Spices: Cinnamon powder , Garam Masala
Lima beans (you can add other veggies too) : 1 cup
Cooked Rice : 2 cups


  1. Cut the top of the bell pepper very carefully. Dont discard it as its to be used as the lid while cooking the bell pepper. Scrape and clean the inside of the peppers carefully. You can cut these into very small pieces and dd it to the stuffing mix later.

  2. Keep the bell peppers aside. In another vessel, heat oil and saute the stuffing mix in the order shown by stirring after each ingredient is added.

  3. Add the shredded Parmessan cheese at the bottom of the bell pepper. Then add the stuffing till the brim. Spread cheese at the top and cover with the top of the bell pepper which was cut earlier. Place all the peppers in a cooker and steam until peppers turn soft and pale and the stuffing is cooked. It might take around 20 minutes or less. You can also cook it in a preheated oven at 350 F for 30 minutes. Serve it hot with raita .
