Hi today I tried Stuffed capsicum, without really stuffing it. And I did it with what ever was available at home, because I did not find all those ingredients at home. Still it came out very well. Hence thought of putting it here.
Un Stuffed Capsicum
Capsicum – 4 large green capsicum ( called Dappa Menasinakayi in kannada)
onions – 2 medium sized
Ground nut seeds – 100 gm ( kadale Beeja)
Salt to taste
Chilly powder – 1/2 spoon
cinnamon powder – pinch
turmeric powder – a pinch
Refined Oil – 5 spoon
cumin seeds – 1 spoon
coconut milk – 50ml
Take a pan. Put oil. Then when it is hot add Cumin seeds, turmeric powder and chopped onions in the same order. Roast well. Once onions look transperent add sliced capsicum. Fry a little. Add required amount of salt. Stir once. Close the lid. And keep it on a low flame.
Now take the ground nut seeds. Roast it in a pan. Fry for 2-3 minutes. Keep aside. Let it cool. Add tamarind, chilly powder and cinnomon powder and grind it. If you dont have cinnamon powder you can add a peice of cinnamon and a peice of lavanga. Grind the mixture.
By this time your capsicum would have cooked properly. Add the ground masala and coconut milk to it.
Now unstuffed stuffed capsicum masala is ready to eat.
I had plans to have it with raagi roti. But it was already 9pm, I had it with rice.
