Stuffed Bell Peppers

Hi Friends,
 Back to the blogging world after a break..........Today's recipe is stuffed bell peppers. I love the recipe and make them quite often.

I love to give my special touch by adding cashews and raisins, that makes a huge difference in the recipe. So wanted to share my recipe with you all, hope you all will like it.......................

5 bell peppers
5 medium size boiled and mashed potatoes
1 medium size onion (finely chopped)
1 tbsp cashew nuts
1 tbsp raisins
1/4 tsp mustard seeds
1/2 turmeric powder
Salt taste
1/2 tsp coriander powder
1/2 tsp garam masala
1/4 tsp dry mango powder (amchoor)
2 tbsp oil


  • Heat oil in a non-stick pan, add mustard seeds.
  • Add onions and saute till they become golden pink in colour.

  • Add raisins and cashews. Mix well.
  • Add all the dry masalas. Mix nicely.
  • Add mashed potatoes, saute for 5-7 mins.

  • Remove the mixture from the fire.
  • Divide the mixture in 5 equal portions.
  • Now fill bell peppers with potato mixture.

  • Heat little oil in the same non-stick pan, place all the bell peppers on the pan.

  • Cook the bell peppers on low flame.
  • Check that bell peppers are cooked evenly from all the side.
  • You can cook them in microwave too.
  • Remove from fire and serve hot with chapatis.
