Mini Colored Stuffed Bell Peppers

A colorful dish of baked small peppers filled with yummy potato filling.


10 small peppers (any color)

3 medium size potatoes

2-3 green chillies

½ tsp grated ginger

½ Asafoetida/hing powder

½ tsp whole cumin seeds

Salt to taste

Red chilli powder as per taste

armchur powder as per taste

½ tsp garam masala

Fresh cilantro chopped


Boil the potatoes, peel and mash.

Take oil in a pan, add hing and jeera.

Once jeera starts to crack, add chopped green chillies and ginger.

Then add the rest of the masalas.

Now add the mashed potatoes and cook well.

Finally add the freshly chopped cilantro.

Take the mini colored pepper, cut off the stem. Slit the pepper vertically and fill in the stuffing.

Pre heat the oven at 400 F, bake the peppers for about 15 minutes until the peppers are soft and partly charred.

The same stuffing can be used for whole green bell peppers. Remove the stem and the seeds. From the top fill in the stuffing and bake it.

Another way is…

Take the green bell pepper and cut it in half.

Remove the seeds and fill the stuffing.

Take some gram flour (besan), make a paste of it. Brush this paste to cover the stuffing.

Take Oil in a pan and deep fry the peppers.

    Hey Deepika, thanks for the recipe, it looks appetizing.
    The dish name is self explanatory however I do not see the bell peppers in as ingredients.
