How to Make Stuffed Bell Peppers

  • Heat 1 tbsp oil and add the mustard seeds. When they crackle, add the urad dal and peanuts. Stir until lightly browned for about 1 minute.
  • Add the onions and potatoes. Saute for about 5 minutes until the potatoes become quite tender. Add the turmeric, chilli powder and salt to taste.
  • Add the chopped portion of the bell peppers and stir in. Cook, stirring, for another 3-4 minutes. Add the cooked rice and mix well.
  • Turn off heat and stir in the chopped coriander.
  • Now stuff each of the three bell peppers with the brown rice all the way to the top.
  • Top each pepper with the bread crumb-miso mixture.
  • Oil an oven-safe bowl in which you can accommodate all three peppers standing up. Place the bell peppers in it.
  • Bake in an oven at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes or until the bread crumb topping is golden brown.
  • Serve hot.
