Stuffed capsicum


This is my second attempt at stuffings.
The first one was a photogenic disaster.
Tasted fine though.
This one tasted good; even picture is close.

And I should have baked it instead of steaming it.

For the stuffing:

Three Onions Chopped fine.
1 TSP each Jeera and Mustard Seeds.
Very Finely chopped
5 TBS gram Flour or Besan (The TBS to be heaped).

Heat 1 Tbs Oil and let sputter the Jeera and Mustard seeds.
Add the onions and saute in low heat.
Cover the pan, so that onions retain the liquid.
(The other alternative is lots of oil which is not advisable.)

When Onions become limp, add the besan and in very low heat keep mixing.
With a wooden spoon.
Stir the mixture continuously, so that the besan cooks uniformly.
Cook for about 10 minutes.
Keep aside.

Cut capsicums in Halves, and remove the seeds.
Fill it with the above stuffing.

Steam slightly in a pressure cooker or bake in an Oven.
Yummy.

Hi Anwesha: Thanks for the enthu and trying out the recipes.. For the capsicum, it shouldn't be baked for long.. In a pre-heat oven at the lowest temp 150 or so, bake for 3-4 minutes.If you are going to steam it, just one whistle.... Hit and trial is the best :-) though

Hi anthony, tried ur stuffed capsicum recipe today. Baking didnt work. then, i tried to pressure cook. i think i over cooked. but, it tasted gud. I feel baking is not advisable for this recipe.
