Stuffed Pepper/Capsicum

P1000992



Watching cookery shows or anything related with cooking , baking or dining is something that me and my Hubby love to watch together, all other times we will be fighting for remotes."Come dine with me" is a programme which airs in U.K in which four strangers go to dine at each others place and secretly score them. I have seen many contestants making stuffed pepper for their starter course .There are many recipes like that which attracted me . I even buy the ingredients but never makes it,finally when the ingredients go beyond the use by or best before date,I chuck it in the bin when S is not around. About a month ago I decided to give this a try and bought peppers but when the peppers were nearing the use by dates I used it in my daily cooking and finished it off.I bought peppers again last week and kept it in the fridge for few days but this time I got a mood to try it out as we had friends for dinner yesterday,I was not very sure about the results as I never tried this before ,but trust me we all liked it.

Ingredients
Pepper - 4
Cuscous - 3/4 cup
Vegetable stock /chicken stock - 1 cube
Water - 1 cup
Onion -1 small
Carrot- 1 grated
Paneer -1/2 cup grated
Salt
Pepper
oil for brushing

Preparation
In a saucepan add some oil and saute the chopped onions,when onions are soft add grated carrot and cook.Finally add grated paneer,season it with salt and pepper and cook for 1 minute.
In another saucepan pour 1 cup of water and add the stock cube.When water boils add cuscous and cook it covered until all water is absorbed. Add the cooked cuscous to the paneer mixture and mix well.
Slice the top of the pepper ,remove the seeds and core.Stuff the pepper with the filling. Brush the outer skin of pepper with oil and bake it in a preheated oven at 200 degree centigrade for 20 minutes.
