Stuffed Capsicum - Bharleli Mirchi

Updated: Jun 3, 2021

This is one of my favourite accompaniment dishes to go with Dal Chawal. Its very easy with minimum ingredients and tastes heavenly.

I had seen my mother make this traditionally Malvani / Koknani Dish.

Here's how I prepared it.

  • Wash and pat dry small sized capsicum ( about 6).

  • In a mixing bowl, add 1 full grated coconut, salt as per taste, 1/2 tsp coriander powder, 1/4 tsp turmeric, 1/2 tsp Cumin powder and mix it well.

  • Now on each capsicum make one sideways slit. Do not slit open completely.

  • Into each capsicum, stuff above coconut mixture. Fill it enough so that it gets all the flavour of coconut.

  • In a deep pan, heat some oil ( about 2-3 tbs)

  • Into this add 1 tsp mustard seeds, 1 tsp jeera, a pinch of hing, 5-6 curry leaves and let it splutter. ( This step I have added )

  • Now place capsicum into the pan. Cover it with a lid and let it cook on a medium flame.

  • Every 5 mins keep turning sides of the capsicum so that it is cooked perfectly. It should get charred on the side.

  • When it about done, add the leftover stuffing into the pan.

Serve this with steaming hot Dal Rice.
