Posted for ZWT6. Adapted from Sanjeev Kapoor's website to make four servings. If you don't have access to paneer, there are recipes on this site to make it homemade. I have listed the amchur (mango powder) as optional in case you can't find it. The type of cheese sprinkled on top is not specified, I would probably use more paneer.
- 4 large green bell peppers
- 3 medium potatoes, mashed
- 200 g panir, grated
- 10 -12 cashews, coarsely ground
- 12 -15 raisins
- 2 teaspoons amchur (dry mango powder) (optional)
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons cayenne pepper (to taste)
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1 teaspoon garam masala
- fresh cilantro, a few sprigs
- salt, to taste
- 2 tablespoons oil
- 1 large onion, chopped
- 1 inch fresh ginger, chopped
- 3 green chilies, chopped
- 1⁄2 cup cheese
- Preheat oven to 430F.
- Slice off the tops of the green peppers and remove seeds.
- Slice off thinly from the bottom so that the peppers stand steady when placed on a baking tray.
- Mix potatoes, paneer, cashewnuts, raisins, amchur, cayenne, cumin, garam masala, cilantro and salt. Set aside.
- Heat oil in a pan and add onion. Cook till translucent and add ginger and green chillies.
- Mix in potato mixture and continue to cook for two minutes.
- Divide this mixture evenly into four portions and stuff the green peppers with the mixture.
- Sprinkle cheese on top and place on baking tray.
- Bake for fifteen minutes.
- Serve immediately.
These were very tasty, different then what I'm used to, but in a nice way. Thanks for sharing :)
