3 to 5 capsicums cut from the middle into two longitudinal halves
2 small cups shredded cottage cheese (paneer)
2 med sized carrots grated
I onion finely chopped
1/4 cup green coriander chopped
1-2 boiled mashed potatoes
1-2 green chillies chopped
1 cup sprouted sabut moong (green) sautéd
Salt and black pepper powder to taste.
Mix shredded paneer, boiled mashed potatoes, green chillies, chopped coriander, finely chopped onion, grated carrots, sautéd moong sprouts, salt and pepper powder.Mix well so that no paneer or potato lumps remain.
Fill this mixture in the cup shaped capsicum halves. Brush olive oil on a non stick pan and cook the stuffed capsicums on both sides till capsicum gets a bit soft.
