Capsicum Boats

Nutritive and easy to make. Can be modified according to taste and liking.

4 medium-sized green peppers
1 cup of carrot cut into cubes
1 cup peas
1 large onion finely chopped
2 small cucumber cut into small cubes
1 green chili chopped
1 tbsp chopped coriander leaves
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp black pepper powder
1 tsp butter

  • Pat dry washed capsicum with paper towel. Cut each into half so that stem is attached to both the pieces of each capsicum. Remove all the seeds. Sprinkle salt and then spray butter on these boats. Bake them in a preheated oven for 15 minutes at 250 degree. Cool and keep them aside for later use.
  • Stir fry carrot chunks and peas in 1 tsp butter in a pan on medium flame for about a minute. These should not lose their crispiness. Take out in a dish and cool them.
  • Mix carrot and peas with chopped onion, cucumber , green chilies and coriander leaves along with salt and black pepper.
  • Add lemon juice. Mix well.
  • Fill each green pepper boat to the top with this mix. Press down and top up to ensure they are well filled.
  • Serve them chilled.
