Bharwa Mirch (Stuffed Roasted Peppers)

Before I actually started making this, I went online to see how others worked out their stuffed peppers and how I can differentiate if from those versions. And then popped the idea. I quickly started working on it and here I present, in front of you all, my version of Bharwa Mirch (Stuffed Roasted Peppers). Yes as the name suggested, the differentiating factor is the roasting of these beautiful peppers to bring that oomph to this dish.

Well this added twist does take a little extra time but that should not stop you from trying it because the final output is worth more than those 10 extra minutes of your cooking. So lets not wait more and just start cooking.

Roasting and filling Peppers:

  1. Coat the pepper with little oil/ butter (optional) and keep it on stove flame. Keep rotating it till the skin become black and charred. This will give peppers enough flavor. Roasting should take 7-8 minutes per pepper.
  2. Once the roasting is done, take the black skin off and fill peppers with the prepared masala. I will say tie them with a thread to let pepper hold enough masala into it.
  3. Now just to heat up everything once again, put the prepared peppers in the same pan once again and let it heat for some time. Your delicious roasted peppers are ready to serve HOT HOT HOT!
