Red Bell Pepper and Paneer Sabji

Red Bell Pepper and Paneer Sabji
Growing up in India it was very rare to get vegetables like baby corn, Bell peppers and other English variety vegetables. Times have since changed these day you get abundant variety of vegetables, during my last visit saw that mom and pop stores carry vegetables like baby corn, lettuce, bell peppers in different colors ( red, green and yellow).

My favorite way to eat red bell pepper is to make it either as stuffing for quesedilla or combine with paneer and make sabji. Red bell peppers are usually sweet, add this to paneer with some strong masala it makes a great combination

Simple process

2 Red bell pepper cubed into small pieces
2 cups paneer ( adjust accordingly)
1 red onion
1 tbsp ginger garlic paste
1 tbsp kasoori methi
1 tbsp red chili paste ( i used the store brought can substitute with red chili powder)
1 tbsp garam masala
1/2 tbsp tomato ketchup/tomato sauce
1/2 cup yogurt

1. In a pan heat 1 tbsp of oil, when hot add ginger garlic paste, kasoori methi, haldi
2. Add finely sliced onions and fry till translucent
3. add finely chopped red bell pepper and salt and cook covered
4. once bell peppers are cooked and soft add paneer, garam masala, tomato ketchup, chili paste, yogurt and mix well
5. cook for 5 minutes covered and then mix well
Serve hot with roti's/phulka or paratha's

This will be my entry for Nupur's A-z of Indian vegetables
