In so many ways we include capsicum in our routine cooking. This recipe is my favourite and it needs time or prior preparation. Capsicum goes well with potato, so I love to stuff capsicum with potato rather than paneer. This combo goes well with roti and rice. When you plan of any special dish , try this recipe.
