Bell pepper stuffed with spicy mashed potato

in Foodies Bee Hive25 days ago

There are different colours' Bell Peppers or capsicums are available but at our place, the green one is the most popular. In fact, other than green bell peppers, different colours bell peppers were not available in the market before a decade but as the demand increased now yellow and red bell peppers are also available, but only at some selected places and very expensive also.

Apart from green capsicum, I rarely use capsicum of other colors. Here a stuffed bell pepper recipe was on my list for a long time so today I decided to prepare this.

Today in my vegetable and fruit shopping I bought 1/2 kg bell pepper, it was just 30 Rs per kg (0.4USD per kg)

I decided to make it stuffed with spicy mashed potato.

How do you cook Bell Pepper or use it in any recipe?


Very delicious, a very filling recipe. I love bell peppers, but they are one of the few foods our kids don't like. I keep trying every few months with no luck.

I love this recipe, this is one of my favorites. I also use paneer stuffing here. It is one of the best ways to eat capsicum.

Yes, there are different types of stuffing we can use to make different varieties of capsicum recipes.
Thanks for visiting!

I was just thinking about stuffed peppers. This looks like a delicious recipe.

Just try it and share your experiences. Thanks for visiting the blog.

Ooh, I've never thought to use potatoes to stuff peppers. I've always done beans and rice or quinoa with a red sauce. Love to have a new idea since peppers will be in season here soon!

Potatoes stuffing is new for you and I never tried beans and rice stuffing. Other than potatoes we use gram flour for stuffing. Thanks for visiting here.

Ooh nice. Always fun to get new ideas!

The thing that I want to try for long time. Thanks for sharing :)

But Imagine the crunchy texture of the bell pepper

For crunchy texture, you have to cook for a lesser time.
