Stuffed Capsicum Paratha!

Ingredients: 4 capsicums, ½ cup paneer, ½ cup cooked and mashed rice, ½ cup mashed potato, 2 or 3 finely chopped green chillies, 1” piece ginger – finely chopped, ¼ cup grated coconut, 1 tsp. lime juice, 1 tsp. sugar, coriander leaves and salt to taste.

2 cups wheat flour, 2 tbsp. butter or oil, enough water to knead the flour for chapathi dough with enough salt and a tsp. of sugar.

Method: Make the chapathi dough and keep aside for half an hour at least.

For stuffing: Apply little oil on the capsicum hold it in a fork or grilling pin and roast it directly on the gas flame for a few seconds. The raw taste will be lesser in this method. Deseed and chop finely. Mix it with the other ingredients.

Make a ball from the dough and press it in the middle to make a cup like shape. Fill it with enough stuffing. Close the top and roll it slowly into parathas. Fry on a non stick pan applying butter/oil.

Serve them with pickle or any hot chutneys.

That's it!

Tip of the day: Capsicum is a good source of vitamin C, A and potassium and it should not be over cooked as it loses its flavour, colour and nutrients.
