  • mini peppers - 10 in 3 different colors - yellow, red and orange
  • bulgur wheat - ¼ cup
  • onion - 1 chopped fine
  • garlic clove - 1 chopped fine or crushed
  • de-husked peanuts - 2 - 3 tbsp
  • whole coriander seeds - 1 tbsp
  • cumin seeds - 2 tsp
  • mild dry red chili - 1 (Kashmiri)

  • red chili flakes - ½ tsp (optional)
  • salt to taste
  • olive oil - 2 tsp for making the stuffing, little more to be brushed on the baking tray
  • cooking spray - few sprays
  • water to cook bulgur wheat


  1. Firstly cook the bulgur wheat in boiling water as advised on the packaging. mine needed 20 min to cook followed by 10 min of standing time
  2. While the bulgur is cooking, chop up the onion, crush the garlic, prep the peppers by carefully removing the green stem part, slitting each one through the middle forming 2 cup like portions
  3. Remove the seeds and the whitish parts inside. keep them ready
  4. Drizzle few drops of olive oil on the baking tray and paint it all over. keep this ready
  5. Heat up a pan. add the whole coriander seeds, cumin and red chili. dry roast them until you see the coriander turning a shade darker, cumin turning much more darker and a lovely aroma emanating from it. transfer these to a plate. once cooled grind them to a powder in the spice grinder or the small jar of your mixer-grinder. keep aside
  6. In the same pan, add 1 tsp of olive oil. drop in the peanuts and roast them until they turn golden brown. transfer to a plate. once cooled grind to a coarse powder using the same grinder. keep aside
  7. In the same pan, add another tsp of olive oil, add chopped onion. stir and cook adding a pinch of salt until the edges turn slightly brown.
  8. Add the chopped garlic and stir, cook again until they turn golden-brown
  9. Now, add the spice powder, stir for few seconds, add powdered peanuts, mix again
  10. Add cooked bulgur wheat, lemon juice, salt to taste. mix well and switch off the heat
  11. Now, pre-heat the oven to 190 deg C
  12. Using a spoon place the stuffing into each half of the peppers, pushing them well in
  13. Arrange the stuffed peppers on the baking tray. spray with cooking spray all over the peppers and bake at 190 deg C for 20 min or until they peppers shrivel and appear cooked.
