Stuffed Capsicum Masala

Capsicum is usually prepared as an accompaniment to the main vegetable curry or recipe in which it is added, but rarely as the main ingredient of a recipe itself. You would have come across capsicum as a pizza topping, as part of fried vegetables in fried rice or noodles, or even as one of the ingredients in some Indian curries - such as Kadai paneer, or kadai chicken, mixed vegetable etc. The interesting part about capsicum are its shape and distinctive flavor. Cutting it slightly on the top makes it look like a bowl - and hence can be used for filling. This is the main essence of the recipe, I am presenting today - Stuffed Capsicum Masala ! Also as it comes in three different vibrant colors - red, yellow and green capsicum - it makes a nice dish from presentation perspective.
