Cheese And Capsicum Gravy

Cheese and Capsicum Gravy

Hello everyoneπŸ’— today I am sharing one of the best recipes that I learnt from my mother.

This is one of the best vegetarian dishes that my family really enjoys and loves to eat, the aroma of spices and the cheesy flavour, can't stop you to try it.

This dish is so famous in North India, especially in Punjab that you must try to make it once with naan, writing about this dish is itself compelling me to cook it again.πŸ˜ƒ

So let's not wait much let me introduce you with the ingredients which we are using to make it. I am making this for four people.

1) Cheese- 400gm
2) Capsicum-300gm
3) Tomatoes- 4
4) Onion- 1
5) Garlic and Ginger paste
6) Green chilli-2
7) Cumin seeds
8) Cloves  ( 3-5)
9) Cardamom (2-3)
10)Cinnamon (one small stick)
11)Turmeric ( 1-2 teaspoon)
12) Red chilli powder( you can skip it, depends on how much spicy you want)

13) Coriander powder (2-3 teaspoon)
14) Dried Fenugreek leaves (a pinch of it)
15) Salt (according to taste)
16) Dry fruit paste: Cashew, Almonds, Pistachio ( a handful of all)

Total time: 30-35minutes


  • Take a pan, put some Ghee or any oil in it then add Cloves, Cardamom and Cinnamon stick wait for a little till they pop then add Cumin seeds.

  • Add Green chillies, Ginger garlic paste (or finely chopped Ginger & Garlic) then add sliced onion, let it cook a little, the onion will get a little brown.

  • Now add red chilly powder, coriander powder, turmeric powder, salt according to taste.

  •  Now add tomatoes and little water in the tadka, wait till it cooks. you'll start seeing ghee or oil on the edges of tadka.

  •  Add dry fruit paste, after it waits for a little now add Capsicum in the tadka.

  • Let the capsicum get cooked for 10 Minutes.

  •  Add cheese cubes and dry fenugreek leaves. Cook for at least 5 minutes more. Then turn off the Gas nob. Let it sits for a while and VoilΓ !!!!  
Ready to serve.

Garnish it with Green Coriander leaves and Serve this dish with Chappati or Naan. I prefer Naan with this dish.YUM!!!!!

  7. Yummy! let me try this recipe. Thanks for sharing ;)

  8. I love Indian cuisine, and this looks tasty! I'm allergic to cashews and pistachios. Can you use almonds and/or peanuts instead? Thanks so much for sharing this recipe!

    1. Almonds would be fine but peanuts will make this dish more heavy to digest. You can use handful soaked almonds or you can skip this step too. Just add the capsicum and cheese into the tadka. Thank you for liking my post.
