Stuffed Capsicum/Green pepper- Andhra Style

Capsicum/Green Pepper can be stuffed using several different mixed like potato stuffing, ground meat stuffing, but in Andhra, the stuffing is made with onion and puffed Bengal gram as the base. It tastes yummy with rice, roti or eat them by itself as some of my work friends do.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes 
Cook Time: 20 minutes 
Serves: 2

Small capsicum/green bell pepper: 6
Onion : 1 medium chopped 
Putnalu/Puffed Bengal gram: 1 cup
Senaga karam: 4 tsp 
Red chili powder: 1/2 tsp 
Coconut powder: 1/4 cup
Cumin coriander powder: 1 tbsp 
Salt to taste 


Take the Putnalu into a grinder and make them into a coarse powder.
Mix all dry ingredients together to make your stuffing.
Heat oil in a pan, add onion and sauté for 2 minutes. Add the powder and sauté for 1-2 minutes.
Cut the tops of the capsicum, take all the seeds out, and save the lid.
Spoon the filling into the capsicum and close the lid. 
Heat 3 tbsp of oil in a pan and fry the capsicum making sure all sides are soft and brown in color. This should take about 15 minutes on low flame and keep closing the lid.
Turn off the stove and enjoy the stuffed capsicum with rice or roti.
