Stuffed Capsicum

After looking here n there I settle with SuperChef's Stuffed Peppers. I made few changes in the recipe and it was super hit, the most appreciated item was this Stuffed Capsicum and it's pity simple to make too. Thanks SuperChef for the recipe ..here is my version:

Ingredients [ For Original Recipe click here]

Capsicum - 6 [I used green, yellow and red]
Onion - 2 medium size [chopped]
Ginger-garlic paste - 2tsp
Cooked Rice - 1&1/2 cup [a cup which can hold 150ml]
Kasturi Methi - 2tbsp
Raisins - 2-3 tbsp
Olive oil - 3-4 tbsp
Cheese - 1/4 cup [ I used Parmesan cheese]
Pepper - 1-2 tsp freshly ground
Salt - to taste


1. Preheat the oven to 375F - 390F.

2. Wash, dry and scoop out the seeds from capsicums [use sharp knief
and scooper] and brush them with olive oil and bake for 15-20 mins. [I
baked for 20mins in 390F].

3. Heat some olive oil in a pan and sauté the onions and ginger-garlic paste until onion turns light brown.

4. Soak kasturi methi in warm water with 1/4tsp of salt for 10-15mins. Drain the water and keep the methi.

5. Add soaked methi, rice, raisins, salt and pepper mix well and cook for 2-3mins.

6. Take out the capsicums from oven and fill them with rice mixture [use different size of spoons for filling will help]

7. Top with grated cheese and bake for 20 mins in 390F. [ I sprinkle some fresh crushed pepper on top of cheese]

Yummy stuffed peppers are ready.
