This recipe goes very well with rice and is a sure shot hit if you have guests invited. You must try out once. I promise you will not be disappointed.

Ingredients for the gravy :
2 onions
½ inch ginger
2 green chilies
½ cup groundnuts
½ cup grated coconut
2 tomatoes
1 tsp coriander seeds
4-5 curry leaves
2 tbsp oil
1 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp red chili powder
1 tsp cumin seeds

Ingredients for the stuffed Vegetables:
2 big green capsicum
2 big tomatoes
3 big potatoes boiled and mashed

1 onion chopped
2 green chili chopped
1 tsp oil
½ tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp garam masala powder (optional)

Method to cook :
Scoop out the contents of tomato and capsicum to give them a big scoop inside.
Boil the capsicum for 5 minutes in hot water to make them soft. Tomatoes need not be cooked.
Heat 1 tsp oil in pan. Add chopped onions and cumin seeds. Once it turns brown, add green peas , chopped green chilies, cover and cook for 5 minutes.
Add turmeric powder, mashed potatoes and salt. Cook for 5 minutes more. Switch off the flame and allow it to cool.
Stuff the tomatoes and capsicum with the cooked potatoes. Heat a non-stick tawa with little oil and cook all sides of the stuffed vegetables till you see it turns brown.
For the Gravy, grind tomatoes, onions , ginger and green chilies together.
Dry roast coriander seeds, groundnuts and coconut and grind to a fine paste as well.
Heat oil in a kadai . Add cumin seeds, add curry leaves and the tomato paste. Cook till the raw smell is gone. Add turmeric powder, red chili powder and the groundnut paste. Add 1 glass of water, salt and bring it to boil.
Once the gravy is cooked and ready, add the stuffed vegetables and serve hot.
