Preparation of Stuffed Capsicum:

  1. Remove the top of the capsicum and take out the seeds inside it. Heat a vessel with water enough to cook the capsicum and 1 tbsp salt. Put the capsicum in it and cook for 5 mins in medium flame. Don’t need to cook fully.
  2. After 5 mins, take out the capsicum and place it upside down in a plate so that any water inside the capsicum will come out. Leave it for 5 mins.
  3. Now heat a roti pan and grease it with 1 tbsp oil. Put the capsicum in it and fry it on all sides for few mins till it turns to brown on all sides, then take out and keep it aside.
  4. On the other side, heat another pan with 2 tbsp oil, add jeera, mint leaves and fry lightly.
  5. Now add all the vegetables (chillies too) and water enough to cook. Add turmeric powder, salt and cook for 10 mins. Add milk and cook for another 5 mins. Remove from flame after all the vegetables get cooked and the water is all gone. It should like curry.
  6. Fill the vegetable curry inside the fried capsicum. Fill it to the top (as shown in the picture) and garnish with coriander.
