A few days back, my hubby calls me and tells me that a friend is coming over for dinner, who is a vegetarian. I was like ok!! I went and browsed through the contents of my fridge and I found these small shimla mirch and I thought I should do something special with these. So I made these stuffed shimla mirch, which is quite easy and tasty too! Guess what our guest thoroughly enjoyed these and I wished I had made some more….


4 small sized shimla mirch

1 large potato

½ cup peas

1 small onion finely chopped

½ tsp turmeric

½ tsp garam masala

½ tsp Kanda masala – red chilli, onion and garlic (or just use red chilli powder)

Salt to taste

1 tbsp lime juice.



  • First boil the potato with its skin. Then peel of the skin and mash the potato with the help of a fork.
  • In a skillet, heat some oil, and then add the chopped onion and fry till golden brown.
  • Then add the peas and let it cook.
  • Now add the garam masala, salt and turmeric. Saute for a min.
  • Then add the mashed potatoes and mix well. Sprinkle some kanda masala. Fry for a minute or two.
  • Then add the lime juice. This mixture is for the stuffing of the shimla mirch.
  • Now cut the top of the shimla mirch and deseed it.
  • Coat each shimla (from the inside) with some salt.
  • Now stuff the shimla mirch with the potato mixture. Spray some oil on each shimla mirch.
  • Now bake the shimla mirch at 180 degrees C for about 15 minutes.
  • Ready to Serve!!
