The recipe

Stuffed vegetables are popular in India and the stuffing itself can be quite varied, using many different vegetables and sometimes paneer. We make these Indian Stuffed Green Peppers a lot for weekday meals as they can be successfully reheated for lunch or a light supper. They are great served with chapatis and sambar.


  • 6 medium sized green bell peppers
  • 4 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • ½ tsp garam masala
  • ½ tsp chilli powder
  • ½ tsp turmeric
  • 10g fresh ginger, finely chopped
  • 225g chopped mixed vegetables (carrots, cauliflower, peas and green beans)
  • 1 medium potato, diced
  • juice from ½ a lemon
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 250ml water


Step 1

Put half the oil into a saucepan and gently fry the coriander, garam masala, chilli, turmeric and ginger for 2 minutes.

Step 2

Add the mixed vegetables, potato, lemon juice and salt and cook for 15-20 minutes until the vegetables are tender while adding a little water if it looks too dry.

Step 3

Cut the top from each pepper and remove the core and the seeds. Stuff the peppers with the mixture and close with the cut off tops.

Step 4

Stand the peppers in a clean saucepan and gently fry in the remaining oil for 5 minutes. Add the water to the saucepan, cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes until the peppers are tender. Serve.
