Video Recipe:

This is a popular recipe in North India and is from Punjabi cuisine. My mom used to make this during winters when these peppers are in season but now capsicums are available through out the season and can be made any time.

This dish looks quite beautiful and appetizing so can be served in parties ans functions also. This can be serve as a side dish or as an appetizers . You can fill these peppers and store in the refrigerator for a day and stir fry before serving.

The filling can be made in so many ways but i loves this spices potato filling as this is the way my Mom use to make this regularly so i love this version the most . You can add mix vegetables or paneer along with potatoes.

I prefer to use small or medium size capsicums to make this but if small capsicums are not available then you can also use thick green chilies/ Bhavnagri chilies to make this which we use to make mirchi pakoda or to make stuffed chili pickle.

Instead of shallow frying in a pan you can also bake these in an oven or brush with little oil and cook in an air fryer or Microwave
