Mughlai Mirch (chili)

इस व्यंजन को हिन्दी में पढ़ें

These royal peppers are so yummy. The rich filling of potatoes and paneer makes this dish special and even kids like to try it. I have used home grown sweet peppers for this dish but if you do not find this particular variety use small bell pepper (capscium/ shimla mirch). Try it out and do not forget to share your thoughts……
