Capsicum Rings

Today I am sharing potato stuffed capsicum rings with you guys. Who doesn't love capsicum and potatoes? This is one of our recent loves and I have made it on repeat in the past months. Naturally, I decided to share this recipe with you guys as well.

This is a really simple recipe that you can always customize the way your taste buds like it. You can add more vegetables or seasonings of your choice. It requires just a handful of ingredients and is multifaceted to be used as an entrée/side dish with your mains.

Go to the end of the article for the complete list of ingredients and the method.

This recipe doesn't require any special tools or ingredients. You can even make it ahead of time and freeze it; although it would not recommend putting it in the refrigerator for a longer time as that will add moisture to the potatoes. You can customise this recipe with your favourite vegetables as well, like juliennes of onion/carrots, etc. You can also alter the seasonings, my version is majorly with Indian spices, but you can add rosemary, black pepper, parsley to twist it towards Italian taste. Use you imagination and have it the way you like it. 🙂

    This looks like a great recipe! It looks like a good way to get kids to eat vegetables too as they look a bit like flowers!

  • Familyearthtrek

    I never had stuffed capsium this way before! It have always keep it whole and stuffed it and then in the oven. Stuffing with potatoes I havent try either so that I have to try! Looks yummy!

    I remember my mum making stuffed Potato -onion capsicum veggie and it tasted yumm. Got the same feeler here:)

  • Calleigh -The Fork Bite

    Never thought cooking capsicum this way. At least I learn another recipe today from you. And these ones look so delectable, I would love to tackle this dish for the Labor Day weekend. Thanks for sharing.

  • It sounds like a great recipe, even if I have never tried stuffing peppers with potatoes. In my country we have a traditional recipe in which we use full peppers and stuff them with a mixture of rice and vegetables or minced meat, then bake them and eat with yogurt. It’s so delicious.

  • Samantha

    I really don’t like peppers but this looks like a delicious recipe so I might try it and cook it for my dad, who really likes them.
    Here in Italy w usually stuff entire peppers with meat, rice and veggies and cook them in the oven.

  • We’re seriously on the same page this week. I made rice and veggie stuffed peppers on a bed of potatoes Friday afternoon, following a years-old recipe I found on Food Network. They were extra good because everything was fresh from the garden. I love your version with the flavors of India. You can bet we’ll be trying it very soon and I’ll report back! x

  • Prateek Goel

    Ohh hoo! I just love this stuff. I just love to eat it. Capsicum is my favorite. The recipe you have shown us is definitely worth making. Simple and beautiful.

  • Oh, these I have to try! Stuffed capsicums are one of my favourite veggie foods but never thought of stuff them with potatoe. Looks and sounds tasty and not too difficult to make.

  • Kailash Joshi

    I love anything which is made up of capsicum and potato and this recipe looks so easy and yummy, ill try it at my home this weekend.

  • Hal Yusuf

    no special tools or ingredients – is the key phrase:p buts its definitely a good option with the stuffing of potatoes

  • Loved the capsicum rings stuffed with boiled potatoes. Also with variations in cheese or other stuffings this can be made. Now you given many ideas to me.

  • kathryn Maher

    Loving this recipe. Everyone in my house loves fried potatoes and also green peppers ( capsicum) . Combining both makes even greater sense. They look super delicious after they have been fried with the batter.

  • I’m use to calling them green peppers that I was at first confused to what capsicum rings were. But I love this idea of stuffing them with a potato filling. I usually just stuff my peppers with cheese and veggies but will give this a must try.

  • zina

    this is a great recipe and we can taste it with cold beer. Thank you for sharing it with us 🙂
