Capsicum (small size) 8-10
Rice 2 cups
Onion 2 nos
Jeera 1 tbsp
Green chillies 6-7 nos
Grated fresh coconut ½ cup
Ginger ½ “
Curry leaves 1-2 strands
Coriander leaves one fist full
Oil 5-6 tbsp
Salt to taste
Wash capsicum. Remove top portion and scoop out the seeds and empty it.
Take 4-5 tsp oil in a pan.
When oil is little hot add capsicum and fry in low-medium heat. Take care while frying, as capsicums are tend to break open. It should be fried evenly.
Remove fried capsicum in a plate and keep aside.
In the same pan put 2 tbsp oil, jeera, slit green chillies and cut onion pieces and saute for 2-3 mins.
Grind ginger and grated coconut without water.
Add the grounded mixture into the pan and mix well.
Add washed rice into it and fry to 2 mins.
Add salt to taste and add 1 ½ cup water and cook for about 4-5 mins.
When it is ¾ done fill to fried capsicum.
Make a bed of remaining rice and place the filled capsicum. Spread finely chopped curry and coriander leaves and close the lid.
Cook in very low heat. No need to mix often. It should be cooked under pressure.
It may take about 8-10 mins depending upon the quantity.
Now Stuffed Capsicum is ready to serve.
