Yield: 4 servings
  • 4 large red bell peppers
  • 2 tbsp canola oil
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds, crushed
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 Indian green chile, minced
  • ¾-inch piece of ginger, peeled and grated
  • 8 oz hard paneer, grated
  • 1 large ripe tomato, finely chopped
  • ⅓ tsp kosher salt
  • ⅓ tsp ground kashmiri chili pepper
  • ½ cup cilantro, minced
  1. Heat oven to 350F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. Cut each pepper in half lengthwise and remove the seeds and membranes. Place on the prepared baking pan, cut side up. Pop them into the oven for about 15 minutes to soften while you prepare the filling.
  3. Heat the olive oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add the cumin seeds and fry for 30 seconds or until fragrant. Add the onion and saute for 8 minutes, or until soft. Add in the green chile and ginger. Saute for 3-4 minutes. Stir in the paneer and the tomato. Cook for 5 minutes, or until the tomatoes have softened. Stir in the salt, kashmiri chili powder, and cilantro. Remove from the heat and stir to combine.
  4. Allow the mixture to cool slightly, then stir it into each of the peppers halves, dividing it evenly. Place in the oven and bake for 20-30 minutes, or until the peppers are soft. Serve immediately.
