#BreakfastforOne Stuffed Bell Pepper

Stuffed bell pepper goes back as basic as Mom made Bharwaan Simla Mirch, as a treat for dinner. Being a rather fussy kid, I did not like the texture of the green pepper after it had been through the grind. Ten years or so down the line, I tried my own breakfast version of stuffed bell pepper.

  • Mash the potato, adding all the vegetables, salt, and pepper.
  • Take a spoonful of the mixture and put it in the cut halves.
  • Top it with grated cheese.
