Capsicum butt stuffed, a complete family entertainment!

Capsolovers family..

My favorite vegetable is capsicum. My husband eats capsicum ..we consume at least a kilo a week. My complete family loves capsicum! We are capsolovers !

Head : Liar ! Husband hates capsicum , your 3 year old boy doesn’t eat any vegetable. Family of capsoooooohaters!

Hey ! careful head , Husband , he eats it..I have prepared for him ..

Head (interrupting) : wait ,I haven’t finished yet ..  And capsolovers ??.. is NO word. See spellcheck is screaming !

 *continuing in a tone of sophistication * : And  by eating , if you mean , trying to thaw it with spoon and murmuring hate for every mouthful  before deciding ,”enough I need an omelette” then yes he did eat capsicum.

Alrite (making a mental note of not lying in front of head),  1/3rd of my family loves capsicum. That is the stat. We are three . Including me.

Head : Do the maths lady ..

So , C’on , what’s not to like , I mean its round ,crunchy, even has a butt so can sit and best of it ,can be taken both – raw or cooked.What other veggie can claim all that adjectives?

Head : veggie  with butt ? Why am I attached to a heart with no sense of world!

I remember a dish .. all of us likes and its of capsicum.

Head : Eh ? The one where you stuff capsicum with whatever you find in your fridge and put it in microwave and eat it almooost raw? 

It is called smart cooking , am a smart cook. Remember this? Don’t spoil it. Am gonna explain how it’s done for only smart readers!

hmm , what should I name the dish?

Capsicum butt stuffed!

So I had few capsicum in my fridge. I bought them green , nurtured in there till turning red and then realized it is not gonna turn into bell pepper , so I might as well finish it before crunch is gone…

See , I told you capsicum have butt and can sit!

Now I need something to stuff up these capsicum. I love stuffed so much!

Head : Eh , and wont you tell your reason for “love stuffed”?

Alrite (making a mental note of trying not to deviate truth in front of head), So I love stuffed capsicum coz that way I can eat capsicum , husband can eat stuffing and I can even make paratha from stuffing for kiddo… .a complete family entertainment!

Phew ! There I said it. This is my family favorite recipe coz everyone get’s to eat their favorite!

Head :  I feel so much lighter now!

Ignoring the snob head..So now I need something to stuff up these capsicum.

(1) Open your fridge , look around and see what can you find? Paneer (cottage cheese) , other cheese , peas. Bring it on. Anything can be stuffed into capsicum. I found mushroom.

(2) Nothing in fridge? Alternative .. hmm you got to have potato in your house.. What kind of Indian ( or European?) are you with no potato!  Boil it and mash it.

Mushroom were getting lonely in fridge and needed some trimming . Mixed here with all spices…

(3) Heat a pan , add butter . Not oil .. Butter is tastier. Add some onion.

(4)  Add mushroom to pan , salt , chilli powder and whatever powder spice you can find.  Find some special spice like amchur , chaat masala..

Head: Aha! You didn’t tell to wash and cut mushrooms before adding to pan , not whole one,

C’on , Do I need to tell this to humans who knows to cook ?

Ignoring …

(5) Add some sauce , it taste good. Open your sauce and soup cabinet and pick one. I had tomato soup. Mix it into the mushroom. It’s better mushroom cooks with sauce.

Head  : Aha! lady .. sauce makes it curry .. you are definitely not looking for a curry to fill into capsicum butthole?

Shut-up head , this is my recipe.

Wait , he is right.

Am not making gratin , its stuffed capsicum.. stuffing should be …solid. Think NOW, risk mitigation , crisis aversion, damage control.

(6) Mix  a bit of corn flour and add to thicken it. It worked, as you can see in picture. And I also added a bit of white sesame seeds, for the white effect 🙂

It just looked good in pan with other red stuff.

Damage contained!

PS: You can skip step 6 , if you have skipped step 5 .

Damage controlled mushroom , cooking in peace and harmony with tomato soup /corn flour

 Head (Grinning ): See I was right 

Ignoring head who think he is Master Chef! Cover the pan and let it cook. This can’t be eaten raw. You see it has no can-eat-raw super power like my doll , capsi!

(7)  Work with capsicum , cut off capsicum’s head , slide off and then empty its belly. remove all the seeds and glaze the capsicum with oil on the inside wall.

 

(8)  Now am bore and I assume you get the drift. Fill the stuffing into capsicum, prepare your micro-wave plate.

Add plenty of oil, place the capsicum on plate and put it inside.

(9) Cook it as much as you want it .. I mean I like a bit raw ,as you can see in the pic.. try different options of microwave – Grill , convection , Grill + convection , power heat , or just plain.. sky is your limit (and the options of your microwave).

Here is the best part !

My husband likes the mushroom stuffing , I finished off the capsicum.

All in one and one in all .

Isn’t this the smartest capsicum butt stuffed ever !

Ta-da!

  1. Love stuffed capsicum – the capsicum however hates the stuffers! “They chop off my head, cut off my bodi (ponytail), scoop out my brains, mix them with other lowly vegetables, and stuff it back into me! Barbarians!” Let it complain all it wants! I mean that’s exactly what my teachers did with me – did I complain?
