Stuffed capsicum, Potato & paneer stuffed capsicum

Today's stuffed capsicum is very easy and tasty recipe. You can use many forms of stuffing. Previously I prepared this recipe with potatoes, i had small paneer pieces in fridge. Thought to use for stuffing by combining both potatoes & paneer, trust me it came very yummy 😋😋. You can have it with rice or Roti's.
You can do stuffing in two ways:
1) By stuffing in full capsicum
2) By cutting into round pieces after stuffing.
           If you are serving for kids serve round pieces,they will enjoy it 🤗. For elders you can serve full stuffed capsicum. Keep the stuff ready and prepare recipe before serving, then you can feel the crispnesss outside capsicum. Capsicum does not take much time to cook.
