Stuffed Capsicum


  • 12 capsicums*
  • 1 whole onion cut finely
  • For the Masala:
  • 4 large tablespoons grated coconut
  • 6 cashew nuts
  • 6 groundnuts
  • 1 teaspoon jeera (cummin seeds)
  • 3 teaspoons til (sesame seeds)


  1. Wash capsicum. With small knife scoop out the centre portion of capsicum with stem, so that you have a small opening to fill.
    Grind coconut, cashew nuts, groundnuts,jeera, til into a thick paste. It must not be too watery.
    Now heat oil, golden brown finely cut onion add the masala and cook for 7-8 mins. Leave the masala to cool.
    After masala is cool, fill capsicums with it completely. In a hollow pan, add little oil and place the capsicums to cook. Cover with a lid. As each side browns, place the capsicum accordingly so that the uncooked portion browns.
    It's very delicious and can be eaten with chapathi.
