Non-veg Stuffed Bell-peppers

Bell-peppers stuffed with a flavorful mix of minced meat & vegetables like carrots & potatoes. (If you’re a vegetarian, look up the Veg. Stuffed Bell-Peppers recipe on this site.)




PrepTime 20mins – Serves 4 – CookTime 20mins


Ingredients :

4 medium bell peppers of any color
1/4kg minced meat
1 medium finely chopped onion
1 medium size potato – cut in small cubes
1 carrot – cut as the potatoes
2 green chilies – chopped
1/2 bunch coriander leaves
1/4 cup mint/basil leaves
1/4 tsp red-chili pwd
1/4 tsp turmeric pwd
1/4 tsp cumin pwd
1/4 tsp pepper pwd
1 tbsp vinegar
salt to taste
cooking oil
2 tbsp butter
some thick thread

Cooking Instructions:

Heat some cooking oil & fry the onions till pink.

Then add the chillies & powder spices and fry well.

Add the potatoes & carrots and cook for 5 whole minutes, tossing a few times in between.

Add the mince and salt & cook covered on low heat until the meat & veggies are cooked.

Last, add the chopped leaves & vinegar, toss well & cook covered for a minute, open, to dry out excess water.

Cut a ‘lid’ off the top of the capsicum, empty the cavity & apply the butter to its inner & outer surfaces.

Fill them equally with the mince & cover with their lids tying with some thread to secure the lid in place.

Grease a pan & shallow fry the stuffed bell-peppers, sprinkling some salt on them.

Cover & cook till they are soft; don’t overcook till they are soggy.

Cut off the threads & serve hot as an appetizer or side to a rice/kebab dish.

Alternatives: Grate some cheese onto the stuffed bellpeppers before tying & frying them. Stuffed bell-peppers can alternatively be grilled/baked, if not shallow-fried.
