ABOUT Spicy Potato Stuffed Bell Peppers RECIPE

Planning meals ahead for a busy weekdays really saves a lot of time. One other thing I usually prepare well in advance and have in my fridge is boiled potatoes. Never underestimate the importance of simple boiled potatoes! Starting from quick and simple stir fry to dunking in delicious spicy gravy, boiled potatoes just blends with any herbs and spices and marries the flavours of any other vegetables. I frequently use potatoes in cooking, adding them with beans or lentils or by simply mashing them to thicken the gravy! This time, I mashed the potatoes and added selected few spices and then simply used it as a spicy stuffing for Bell Peppers. Since I already had boiled potatoes in fridge which I cooked on previous day, the whole preparation of this delicious Stuffed Capsicums/Bell Peppers took under ten minutes. This is really a recipe for busy weekdays when you want to cook a complete meal without slaving hours in your kitchen.
