Stuffed Capsicum Curry / Maalu Miris Piravuma.

Sweet capsicums are nice when stuffed. Capsicums can be stuffed with different fillings. with fish, potatoes or even meat. This recipe is a copy cat of my late grand mother. I used to stuff them for her all the time.

When you buy capsicum to stuff make sure to buy the same size or short capsicums.
