Preheat the oven to 220' C.
Heat oil in a thick bottomed pan. Add chopped garlic and cumin seeds, fry till it splutters. Add chopped onions and fry till it browns.
Add minced meat, stir well , break any lumps if formed. Add chopped tomatoes, ginger garlic paste, green chilli paste, salt and all spices and cook it covered on a slow flame for around 10 minutes.
When it cools, check the seasoning once, mix into it lemon juice, coriander leaves and grated cheese.
Wash the peppers and cut the top of each pepper. Remove the seeds and membrane to make hollows. Arrange peppers in a baking dish with the hollowed sides facing upward. (Slice the bottoms of the peppers if necessary so that they will stand upright.)
Stuff the peppers with cooked mince. Grate generous amount of cheese over it and bake it in a preheated oven at 220'C for 10-15 minutes.
