Paneer Pepper Pot

                        Red, Yellow and Green bell peppers along with paneer form the basis of this quick and simple entree which goes well with rice as well as roti.

                     Red bell pepper is sweeter in taste as compared to green one which is little on spicier side. I have used all three kinds of bell peppers to make the dish look colorful as well as I like the taste of red bell pepper.
           Its simple quick dish which looks attractive and tastes great. Its more like an Indianized version of Thai red curry..

  • 1 red capsicum
  • 1 yellow capsicum
  • 1 green capsicum
  • 1 large onion
  • 2 garlic
  • 1 cup paneer cubes
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 500 ml coconut milk
  • 2 tsp coriander powder
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • ¼ tsp turmeric
  • 1 ½ tbsp chilli powder
  • 1 tsp jaggery
  • 1 tsp salt

  • Heat oil in a frying pan, once hot, add cumin seeds and turmeric powder.
  • Once cumin seeds start spluttering, add large chopped onion. Basically. Chop each half into 6 pieces and separate the slices.
  • Let the onions turn transparent and the add chopped garlic and chopped capsicum. Saute for 5 mins.
