Bharli dhabu mirchi (stuffed Bell Pepper)

Stuffed Capsicum

This is a simple recipe my mother use to make, I love the taste of coconut in the capsicum. In my mother's house we had two pans / tawa, one for chapapti and other for making vegetable and Bhakri. For making chapati it was flat pan but making vegetables it is bit deep / kholgat we call it 'kala tawa' black pan as it is black in color, mostly it is made of iron. So the food tastes better when made in it. So the conclusion is we make this capsicum in this pan / tawa. :) 
  • 5 green capsicum / bell pepper
  • 3 cup fresh grated coconut.
  • salt to taste
  • oil for shallow frying.
  1. Cut the capsicum into 2 parts ( not 2 separate parts, but just give a slit in them)
  2. Mix coconut and salt together.
  3. Fill the capsicum with the coconut and salt mixture.
  4. Shallow fry them in Pan or tawa or roast in oven.
  5. Let them fry well, turn them now and then to cook from all sides.
  6. Have it with Chapati, Enjoy
