Romano peppers stuffed with paneer & peas
- Preparation and cooking time
- 2 tbsp vegetable oil
- ¼ tsp each mustard seed and turmeric
- 1 tsp each cumin seeds, paprika, ground coriander and ground cumin
- 225g paneer cheese, cut into 2cm cubes
- 100g frozen peas , defrosted
- 1 tomato , diced
- 2 Romano peppers
- STEP 1
Heat the oil in a pan. Add the mustard seeds, turmeric and cumin seeds, and cook until the mustard seeds start to pop. Add the paprika, ground coriander, ground cumin and ½ tsp black pepper with the paneer, and stir-fry until a light golden colour, about 3-4 mins.
- STEP 2
Add the peas and tomato with some salt. Cook for 5 mins more until the tomatoes have softened to a pulp-like texture, then remove from the heat.
- STEP 3
Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Cut a slit in the peppers from top to bottom, but leaving 3-4cm intact at each end. Use a teaspoon to scoop out the seeds then stuff the peppers with the paneer mix. Transfer to a baking tray and roast for 10-12 mins until the peppers have blistered and browned lightly. Serve with the Yogurt & spice crusted roast potatoes (see 'Goes well with').
