Start by boiling water in a pan with a pinch of salt. Add the bell peppers to it and cook until they become soft.
Once done, drain all the water and arrange them evenly in a baking dish.
To prepare the filling, sauté onions in oil until translucent. Transfer them to a bowl and add rice, chopped tomatoes, and black beans.
Mix well and then add red chilli powder, garlic, cumin, salt, and grated mozzarella cheese.
Combine everything together, and stuff the capsicums with this mixture.
Top it with some more cheese and bake at 180 degrees C until the cheese melts. Garnish with coriander leaves and serve hot!
