This is an excellent recipe with red capsicum/
peppers.Good to be served as starters.
The bright red colour attracts you ,even if you
are not a vegetable lover.
Considering the health benefits, and the rich
nutrients it contains ,I try adding into salads ,
chutneys ,rice ……..Red capsicum when
compared to the green has more benefits
and taste,so do try red capsicum often .( do I
sound like a brand ambassador for red
To the recipe now
Red capsicum cut into 2 ,and stalks cut off .
150 -200 gm grated paneer ( cottage cheese)
1-2 tsp red chilli paste*

leeks / thinly chopped Palak( spinach)
3-4 tbsp panko / coarse breadcrumbs
Enough grated cheese to top the peppers
A little oil and salt mixed to apply inside the
peppers before stuffing
•Mix grated paneer with chilli paste,green
chilli,parsley and mix well .
•Add panko and mix lightly
•Stuff the peppers with the paneer filling
•Sprinkle grated cheese on it
•Arrange on a baking tray,and bake in a 200C
oven for 12-15 minutes .
Place the tray in another tray filled with
little water before baking .( water bath).
*The key ingredient to the taste is the chilli
paste, so choose a good one
The paste I made was a lemongrass chilli paste
