Green Peas Cottage Cheese Cups

READY IN: 1hr 40mins




  • To prepare the dough, mix refined flour, ghee and salt in a round flat-bottomed bowl using your greased(with some ghee so that the dough will not stick to your fingers)fingers.
  • Add enough water as is required to prepare the dough until it is semi-hard.
  • Keep aside for 10-15 minutes.
  • From the dough, pinch off small balls.
  • Flatten each ball and then roll it out using a rolling pin(just the way you make chappati/roti/Indian flatbreads). Roll out to the size of about 7 cms. in diameter.
  • Now take about 7 small metallic containers.
  • Cover them from outside using the thinly rolled dough.
  • Deep fry in warm oil till the dough is golden brown and crispy.
  • What we are trying to achieve here is the shape of the cups. I think it is an amazing way of blending in creativity into cooking!
  • Drain on clean absorbent kitchen paper napkins.
  • Next, carefully separate the container and cups.
  • Store the cups in an air-tight container.
  • Repeat likewise for remaining cups.
  • Then start making the stuffing.
  • For this, heat oil in a pan.
  • Toss in onions and stir-fry for a minute.
  • Fold in capsicum and stir-fry for another 2-3 minutes.
  • Sprinkle some water while stir-frying to prevent from burning.
  • Add the boiled greenpeas and the mashed paneer, garam masala powder, salt and chat masala powder. Mix thoroughly.
  • Stir-fry for another 5 minutes.
  • Remove from heat.
  • Allow it to cool.
  • To serve, stuff the cups with the prepared stuffing.
  • Then, garnish each cup with finely chopped tomatoes and finely chopped corriander leaves or parsley or cilantro or mint leaves(whichever is your favourite).
  • Note: You may also use your choice of veggies in the stuffing. If you do, please mention it in your review for myself and others to try. Thanks!
