How to make Spicy Potato Stuffed Bell Peppers

  1. Pre heat the oven to 200 deg C or 400 deg F. Line the baking tray with parchment or aluminium foil.
  2. Mix in all the spice powders listed above along with salt to taste to smoothly mashed potatoes. Make sure that all the spices are mixed well and no lumps are formed.
  3. Halve the capsicums/bell peppers vertically and remove the seeds.
  4. Stuff the halved, deseeded bell peppers with spiced potato mash. Make sure that you stuff them evenly.
  5. Once all the bell peppers are stuffed, arrange them on lined baking tray.
  6. Sprinkle little grated cheese on top and bake them in middle rack for 15 to 20 minutes until the cheese melts and the skin of bell pepper wrinkles and browns.
  7. Serve the Stuffed Capsicums/Bell Peppers hot with flavoured Basmati rice or any Indian flat breads and gravy based dish. Alternatively you can serve them with toast and soup.

My Tip:

Add as little or as many spices as you like. You can also add a tsp of crushed Kasuri Methi or dried fenugreek leaves for earthy flavour. The cooking time varies depending on the size of bell peppers used. I have used medium sized bell peppers here. I used mature Cheddar cheese as that’s what I had in my fridge. You can use mozzarella or any other cheese of your liking or simply leave it out!
