Stuffed Bell Peppers( Bharwaan Mirchi)

Today's recipe is from the same cook book"  Indian Home cooking" . It was difficult for  me to choose what to cook for today because this book has lots of veg and non veg recipes. Finally I wanted to cook something which I never tried. Bought some fresh bell peppers from farmers market today and tried Bharwaan Mirchi which is a stuffed bell pepper recipe. It was soo simple to cook and  also colorful as I used 3 different colored  peppers. 

We need:

Bell peppers / Capsicum  3( any color)
Potato 2 medium
Coriander seeds 1sp
Cumin seeds 1sp
Green chili chopped 1/2 sp
Chili powder 1sp
Chopped cilantro 2sps
Chopped mint leaves 1sp
1 lime juice
Salt to taste
Black pepper powder 1/4sp
Oil 2sps
1 egg


Boil the potatos in presser cooker.
Let them cool, peel off skin and mash it.
Meanwhile cut around the stems of bell pepper, removing about 2 inch round from the top od each bell pepper pull out and discard these tops.
Scrape out the ribs and seeds with spoon or small knife. Wash the bell peppers and keep aside.
Dry roast cumin and coriander in pan and make it to coarse powder.
Now add the cuminand coriander powder, chili powder, green chili chopped, cilantro, mint, lime juice, salt and black pepper to the mashed potato.
Now stuff this mixture into bell peppers and keep aside.

Beat the egg in a small bowl and keep aside.
Preheat oven to 400 Degrees F.
Heat oil in a pan, now dip the stuffed side down into the egg  and place it on the pan( cut side down).

Cook untill egg has browned and formed crust on top.
Now put the peppers right side up( cut side up) and place the pan in oven  and bake untill the peppers are tender. For about 30minutes.

Serve hot.
