At least once in a week I use to cook either mix vegetable or mix vegetable stuffed capsicum; both are very healthy version and easy to cook. Make stuffing according to your taste or vegetable available in your refrigerator. Here I used carrot, potato, zucchini and peas. You can prepare this with or without onion and garlic. I still have taste lingering on my palate because capsicum is one of my favorite.
