To make Stuffed Peppers:

  • 3 Medium Bell peppers
  • 1 tbsp Oil

For the Potato Stuffing:

  • 1 tbsp Oil
  • 1 tsp Mustard seeds
  • 1 tsp Cumin seeds
  • 4 Medium Potatoes, boiled and peeled
  • 1 Small Onion, diced
  • ½ tsp Red chili powder
  • ½ tsp Turmeric
  • 1 tsp Garam masala
  • To taste Salt


Prep the Peppers:

  • Core the peppers and remove the seeds and fibers from the inside. If the peppers are too big, then half them and remove the seeds. Prep all the peppers and keep ready.

Make Potato Curry:

  • Heat oil in a pan, add mustard and cumin seeds. Once the seeds start to splutter, add onions and cook until they start turning lightly browned around the edges.
  • Add turmeric, boiled and peeled potatoes, garam masala and salt. Mix well and cook covered in low flame for 4~5 minutes, so all the flavors have a chance to mingle. Turn off the heat and cool the stuffing for 10-15 minutes.

Make Stuffed Peppers:

  • Generously stuff each pepper with the potato curry.
  • Heat 1tbsp in a wide heavy bottomed pan, place the peppers cut side up in the pan and cook covered on medium-low flame until the peppers are completely cooked through and tender. Gently turn the peppers around during cooking, so all sides cook evenly. Sprinkle some salt on the peppers to season them, if desired.
