Besan Paneer Bharwa Mirchi #sikandalouscuisine

I have been toying with the idea of making stuffed chilies with different ingredients , outside my regular mince/potato/dal/besan etc stuffing .I had that eureka moment when I found myself with 100 grams of paneer and 10 large green chilies - so here is what we did to delicious ends.
As an experiment I baked half of them and the rest did in the conventional way - in a frying pan , both methods came out superb.Measurements are approximates.
10 Karge Green Chilies / Jalapenos.
4 Tablespoons Besan.
1 Tablespoon Chopped Onion.
1 Small Tomato chopped ( 3 tablespoons )
1/2 Teaspoon Jeera Seeds.
2 Teaspoons Dhania Powder.
3 Regular Green Chilies Minced.
100 Grams Grated Paneer.
1 Teaspoon Sauf Powder.
1 Teaspoon Roasted Jeera Powder.
1/2 Teaspoon Haldi.
Mustard Oil.

Make slits in one side of the chilies almost end to end - to create a cavity.Which you will fill with the stuffing explained below.

Heat about 3 tablespoons mustard oil , when smoking add jeera seeds , then add onions. When onions turn soft add haldi , minced green chilies and besan. Saute 3-4 minutes.

Now add paneer and salt , cook another 2 minutes. Add sauf and jeera powder and tomatoes.Mix for 1 minute and take off heat . Don't cook tomatoes , you want them to release their juices when into the stuffing when chilies are filled and on the pan frying/baking.
If frying , add 2 tablespoons oil in a fry pan , add stuffed chilies,cover pan , cook on medium heat for 3 minutes.Turn chilies once , cook covered another 3 minutes or till done.
If baking , simply lightly coat chilies with oil using your palms and apply some oil in the dish too.Cover dish with foil and bake at 200 for 20 minutes. Both methods work beautifully.
