Tandoor is an Indian cooking earthen pot which is heated with charcoal or wood to a high degree and it roasts the dishes to a distinct aroma and taste. If you don’t have tandoor , you can also use an over to roast the ingredients. Bell pepper is easily available all over the world and though many children don’t like it but if you prepare it like this then they start to like it. This is a very healthy dish and easy to cook and all the ingredients are very cheap ( at least in India) and healthy to eat. There are few ingredients which may not be easily available in west but can easily be ordered online on EBay or Though red chili powder is used in the preparation of this dish, but surprisingly this dish is not very spicy. Make sure that bell pepper is fresh and deseeded properly.


1. Green Bell peppers (Capsicum): 4 small.

2. Potato: 1 medium boiled and grated.

3. Cottage Cheese: 200 grams grated.

4. Oil : 3 Tsp

5. Cashew Nuts: 5 chopped.

6. Raisin: ¾ Tsp

7. Onion: 1 Red medium finely chopped.

8. Carrot: ½ red finely chopped.

9. Ginger: ½ inch ginger finely chopped.

10. Red Chili Powder: ½ Tsp.

11. Green Chilies: 2 deseeded and chopped finely.

12. Garlic cloves: 2 chopped finely.

13. Chat masala: 1 Tsp.

14. Salt: To taste.


1. First of all take all the four bell peppers and divide them in to two parts each vertically.

3. Now mix one Tsp of oil in salt.

4. Now rub this mixture in the inside and the outside of each bell pepper.

10. Now to this add cashew nuts, potatoes, red chili powder, cottage cheese, raisins and chat masala.

11. Mix well and cook for 2 minutes and remove from fire/ heat.

12. Now heat the tandoor.

13. If you donot have tandoor then preheat the oven at 180 C or 350F.

14. Now while the oven is being pre heated, fill each half of the bell pepper with potato cheese mixture.

15. Take a baking trey and greese it with oil or butter.

16. Now place bell peppers in the trey and put it in the pre heated oven for 15 minutes.

17. Remove trey when bell pepper has turned slightly soft.
