Baked Capsicum

Stuffed Capsicum

Pepperoni ripieni, a scrumptious main course dish can be made with red,green ore yellow bell peppers.


3-4 red,green or yellow capsicum
2tbsp olive oil
1 potato boiled and mashed
225 gms white button mushrooms grated
1tsp ginger garlic paste
1 small onion finely chopped
1tbsp finely chopped coriander leaves and mint leaves
1tsp coriander powder
1tsp red chilli powder
¼ tsp turmeric powder
1 ½ tsp pepper powder
1 small tomato finely chopped
2tbsp grated cheese
salt to taste


Heat oil in a pan,Add ginger garlic paste, and saute for a while
Add onion,tomato and leaves,saute until soft .
Add all the powders and stir well for 4 seconds.
Add grated mushrooms and salt and cook till the mushroom becomes dry.
Add the mashed potato and mix well.
Preheat the oven to 180 degree C.
Cut the capsicum in half and stuff with the mushroom potato mixture.
Garnish with grated cheese on the top and bake in the preheated oven for 40 minutes.
(I like the crispiness of capsicum, So I baked only for 20 minutes).
