Smoked Stuffed Capsicum

This one's something my mom and aunt (dad's sis) make.. Its different and nice.. May be its a Sindhi dish.. not sure..

My mom in law's reaction was the best! hmmmmm.. she went.. cos of the smoked flavour!

For the Stuffing (this is the simple aloo bhaji we generally make)
Take 4 medium potatoes, boil, peel and chop them into cubes.
In a pan, heat some oil, add some mustard seeds, some curry leaves, and a chopped green chilli. Add salt, and cover and cook for say 5 mins. Generously add chopped coriander leaves to it.

Then.. take say 4 big / 8 small capsicums. Using your knife creatively, remove the top stem of the capsicum, so as to have a hole at the top. Stuff the potato bhaji into this.

Then, just cover all the stuffed capsicum with a little oil, and roast on the flame till tender from all sides..(the way we roast the brinjal for baingan bartha).. The smoked flavour is truly different!
