  1. Wow, what a nice twist on an old classic stuffed bell pepper. This was great as a main dish or all in one dish. I did improvise a lot though on the stuffing and did not make the gravy. Still had that wonderful Indian curry flavor and my wife just loved them.
  2. I made this the other day, and I thought it was a nice change for an indian dish, but found the gravy a bit too plain. Might want to spice it up a bit... add more cream next time as well. I grated the paneer and smashed up the potatoes for the filling, and I think that may have made it a bit too mushy. I will opt to just cut small cubes of both next time and stuff it, giving me something to bite into next time. Served with paratas. Glad I tried this!
  3. This recipe is good but not for dinner maybe for appetizer or as a side dish
