Stuffed Capsicum or Bell peppers with Potato curry

Past weekend, we had good weather and after a very long time we went out to Boston to enjoy our day and good weather. There were pretty tulip blossoms and cherry blossoms all around the city. We had a picnic lunch at Boston Harbor in the beautiful green lawns. Kids enjoyed running around, even behind the poor pigeons. Then we went to the Boston Aquarium and ended the day with eating in Quincy Market and watching the movie Avatar in 3D IMAX. It was a fun day overall. We were all tired by the time we came home!

That morning me, my mom and dad walked thru the farmer's market called Hay market in Boston. Bought some veggies and fruits for real cheap too. There were some small bell peppers, real cute, very tiny than the regular peppers we get in the grocery store. We bought them thinking already with a recipe in mind - Stuffed Bell peppers. Thats what ended up in our kitchen today!!!

We used 2 potatoes to make the Mashed potato curry  since these were really tiny bell peppers, so adjust accordingly. But potato curry is just one type of stuffing, you can always stuff it with what ever you like!!
It takes about 15 min to make potato curry and another 10 to 15 min to shallow fry the bell peppers. You can also bake them if you want to keep it on the healthier side, but it will take a little longer.


2 potatoes to make Mashed Potato curry

7-8 tiny bell peppers
2 tbsp oil for shallow fry
salt to tast


In a open pan with a lid, heat oil. Cut open the top and stuff the bell peppers with the potato curry and put into the oil. Salt them all over while turning them. Cover and cook until cooked all over, turning over once in a while. Serve with rice or pulav. Makes a good party dish and a side item. Enjoy!!!
