Stuffed capsicum Punjabi style recipe / stuffed capsicum with potatoes filling, stuffed capsicum step by step images, stuffed capsicum recipe video.

There are many ways to make stuffed capsicum by stuffing it with different filings. Today’s recipe has a filling of boiled and mashed potatoes with some Punjabi spices and then first sautéed on high flame and then cooked on low heat to get the perfect roasted feel.

I like it a bit roasted brown so I sauté it on high heat first. You can skip this if you do not like it roasted.
