Cabbage Stuffed Capsicum is a unique recipe, which makes a great starter for parties. It is quite easy to make in the microwave oven but tastes very exotic.
Here, the capsicum is cooked with a crunchy and spicy stuffing of cabbage and green chillies bound together by besan. The stuffed and cooked capsicum is then tossed with a simple tempering, which gives a fresh burst of flavour and aroma to the dish.
Make sure you bite the whole deal at one go – that is, capsicum and cabbage together in every bite, as it gives a balanced taste and mouth-feel.
