Notes

  • 1. There are several ways to cook stuffed capsicums, such as roasting in a pan, Steaming or Shallow frying.
  • 2. Pan sizzling is the best method according to me as it allows capsicums to size and sear.
  • 3. If you are going to steam them, introduce a splash of water to the pan and cover, allowing the capsicums to cook in a steam.
  • 4. Shallow frying the stuffed capsicums is not necessary according to me as this method needs a lot of oil.
  • 5. This dish can be made with any variety of bell peppers – red, orange, yellow or green.
  • 6. Try to use small to medium-sized bell peppers as they are easy to fill and saute. The large-sized capsicums may not cook evenly unless you bake them.
