    Hi Jayashree,
    Very good morning dear.
    Can you believe, we too prepare stuffed capsicum this way and this is one of most preferred capsicum recipe in our house.

    Mom use to prepare this from my school days.
    I still remember we use to eat the yummy potato stuffing and throw the skin..

    But as very grow old, we understand the importance of food and don’t feel like wasting food. So eat this full and I mainly cut the capsicum in two halves and do the roasting both the sides, as make it more crispy. I mainly cook this recipe on gas stove.

    I have recipe images to draft this recipe and share as prepared last week only. I will share my version very soon.
