Stuffed Chilli / Capsicum

This one’s my mom-in-law’s recipe for stuffed chilli

The Filling:
2 cups roasted besan
1/4 tsp tumeric powder
1/2 tsp red chilli powder
2 tsp coriander powder
A bunch of chopped coriander leaves
Sugar to taste (1 to 2 tsp)
Salt to taste
Lemon juice to taste (say, juice of 1/2 a lemon)
2-3 tbsp oil
(We never cook by measurements, always by 'andaaz' as per my mom in law!!.. you can tell the taste by the smell too of the food too!)

Cook the filling in oil, until the masalas get cooked. We generally taste and add anything else required..

Take a few fat green chillies / capsicum, slit and fill them with the filling mixture.

Then cook the stuffed chillies in some oil in a kadhai / pan. Cover and cook and keep stirring the chillies every 2 mins.

Enjoy as a yummy snack or main course!

Tip: You can use the same filling masala andcook chopped capsicum in it!
