1.5tspKashmiri Red Chilli Powder
1/2tspRed Chilli Powder
2tspChaat Masala Powder
Juice of Half a Lemon
Handful of Mint and Coriander leavesfinely chopped
2-3tbspOil for shallow frying
Salt to taste
For the Stuffing
In a pan, heat up a tbsp of oil. Once hot add cumin seeds; let it splutter. Add the chopped onions and saute until transparent.
Add ginger garlic paste and saute till the raw smell goes.
Add all the spice powders - kashmiri red chilli, red chilli and turmeric powder. Mix well and saute until cooked.
Add the boiled potatoes and scrambled paneer. Mash well. Mix until well combined. Add salt to taste and mix well
Switch off the gas and remove from heat. Add the chaat masala, lemon juice and mint-coriander leaves. Combine well and keep aside.
For the Capsicum Rings
Wash the capsicums and cut the top off the capsicum. Remove the seeds from inside to make it hollow.
Using a sharp knife cut rings of about 3-4 mm thickness. You will get around 4-5 rings from one capsicum depending upon the size of the capsicums.
Take handful of the stuffing and stuff each ring generously. You must fill it enough such that it is easier to lift and handle the rings. If the ring is falling apart while lifting that means you have not stuffed it enough.
Heat a nonstick pan or use the same pan that you used to saute the stuffing. Add 2-3 tbsp oil and shallow fry the rings until golden brown.
Serve hot with chutney of your choice. It makes around 12-15 capsicum rings.
