Stuffed bell peppers

An easy recipe for stuffed peppers.

Ingredients2 medium sized bell peppers (green, red or yellow)
2 medium sized potatoes
1/2 cup green peas (fresh or frozen)
1 small onion chopped
1/2 tsp cumin powder
1/2 tsp red chilli powder
1 tsp chopped coriander leaves
Salt to taste
1. Blanch the peppers (whole) in hot water until slightly tender. Drain and keep aside.
2. Prepare the filling by first cooking the potatoes. An easy method is to microwave them. After they are cooked, peel off the skin and mash them up.
3. Pour oil in a pan, add the onions and fry until transparent.
4. Add the peas and saute.
5. Once the peas are done add the mashed potatoes, cumin powder, chilli powder and salt.
6. Mix well and add the coriander leaves.
7. Cut the tops of the blanched peppers and fill to brim with the potato mixture.
8. Pour oil in a flat bottomed pan and shallow fry the peppers. Cook all sides of the pepper (keep turning the pepper until the skin is slightly charred on all sides).
9. Serve hot or warm.

Serving size - 1 medium bell pepper
Number of servings - 2
