Off the Flame and then add lemon and black pepper.
Stuffing the Peppers:
Wash and dry Capsicum with cloth. Cut capsicum into thick rings (1 capsicum -3 rings). Remove the seeds with knife. Now in a pan add oil after it get heated add cumin and green chillies later mix it to paneer along with salt and black pepper. Now take two rings. Place small ring inside the big one see that there is a gap between two rings for the filling Now add white fillings in the centre and potato (Quinoa) stuffing between two rings. Take a pan or tawa apply oil and place the stuffed rings and gently turn the ring after 5mints approx when u see light brown colour ( i like crispy so roasted it till brown) do the same on both side of the ring. Capsicum rings are ready. Serve with mint chutney , ketchup.
Note : if necessary add cornflour to bind paneer.
If the small ring doesn’t fit into big ring cut the small portion of the capsicum ring which your going to place it inside the ring and with the finger just hold the ring while you put your stuffings. once the stuffing is completed the inner ring would stand stiff.
Make sure capsicum rings are of same thickness. If you like capsicum ring to be tender you can either boil the capsicum until little tender or you can also roast the ring of the capsicum until little brown with 1 tspn oil.
layout of stuffed capsicum can be of your choice.. get creative 😉
In Quinoa stuffing you can use any Vegetable of your choice..
you can also use 1 tsp Beetroot juice or 2 tbsp Mint chutney to make the paneer look colorful. or you can use both if you’re planning to use just Paneer stuffing. (Make two parts of grated paneer to one part add beetroot juice and little bit of salt according to taste and mix it. Repeat the same with other part but with mint chutney.)
