Minced meat filled capsicum are one of my favourites.I make these only when my wife is home so that she can also contribute her pair of hands when it comes to rolling the capsicum in the batter.Always choose medium size straight capsicum with the stem.
Step 1: Ingredients
400 gr Minced meat
10-12 Green Capsicum
1-2 tble sp Paprika powder
1 tea sp Turmeric powder
1 -2 tble sp Curry powder
4 cloves garlic
small piece ginger
Salt to taste
1-2 cups all purpose Flour
Small bunch of Fresh corriender leaves
Chopp the onions in to tiny pieces.Great the garlic and ginger as well.
Step 3: Stir Fry
Warm a little bit of oil and temper the chopped onions,stiring on and off in medium heat until it slightly turnes to light brown in color
Step 4: Cook
When the onions turn color add the minced meat little by little.Keep stiring until the minced meat seperates in to little bits.After about 10 to 15 minutes add the Paprika powder ,curry powder ,turmeric powder and salt (in powder form)to taste.You need to keep on mixing it in a medium heat until it cooks.Now add the tomatoe puree and let it cook .Next throw in the ginger garlic paste and the cloves..Please do not add water.After while add the chopped corriender leaves.
It is always nice to add fresh corriender leaves.I used frozen corriender leaves because I did not have the fresh one at the time of cooking. :(
Cover and let it simmer for a while on slow fire.There should not be any gravy once it is cooked.
Step 5: Filling
Wash the green capsicum and slit in the middle from top to bottom on one side.Using your fingers remove the seeds away and fill the capsicum with the cooked minced meat.You can fill it full or just enough as long as the whole capsicum is filled.
Step 6: Batter
Make the batter by mixing 1 or 2 cups of flour with a little water.When you mix it with your hand you will know the consistency .
Have them all ready before you start rolling them in the batter.
At this point you need another pair of hands.As the bread crumbs are dry and the batter is wet.Thanks to my wife who rolled the capsicum on the batter and passed it on to my bread crumbs tray. I rolled them on the bread crumbs.
Step 8: Fry
Once the oil is really heated drop the capsicum slowly in to the oil.fry two or three at a time.When you put too many in to the frying pan the coating may come out while turning them.So watch out while frying.
Straight away transfer it to a paper plate or a kitchen tissue to get rid of the excess oil.
Step 9: Ta Da!
This should be served warm with your choice of sauce.Goes well it.
Cast your votes if you think this is a nice delicious snack.
Of course this taste good.
