Capsicums are crunchy, pack just the right amount of heat and come in enticing vibrant colours. But even with these qualities, the humble capsicum does not find itself under the limelight in an Indian kitchen. We either save it for our pizzas and pasta or pair it as an extra with some other vegetable if it is lucky enough to see the light of the day. But do we ever think of capsicums as the main dish itself? Well, if your answer to the question is no, then maybe this recipe of an easy and delicious bharwa capsicum can hopefully change that.
In simple words, Bharwa Capsicum is deseeded capsicum stuffed with a tangy and spicy potato filling, fried until it is juicy and delicious. The tangy potato filling is balanced just right with the mild heat of the soft capsicum skin and it makes for an interesting pair with rice or roti. If you'd rather not fry the capsicum, try baking it by applying some olive oil and salt on the capsicum skin and savour this easy dish for lunch or dinner. Want to give this a try?
