Navratri 2018- Day 7 - Red

Red is the color of blood. It is also associated with love, passion, heat, fire and danger. It’s an intense color and is linked with intense feelings and gestures, both positive and negative. In India the color red has a special sentiment for married women and in the west the combination of green and red traditionally represents Christmas the most joyous holiday season.
Red foods are health heroes when it comes to a balanced diet. Packed with lycopene that protects our skin as well as reduces risks of cancer. Cherries, raspberries, watermelon, tomatoes and beets are the most easily available reds that can be included in our daily diet.
Inspired by the color red of day 7 of Navratri I made stuffed red pepper:
This is a very versatile recipe and can be modified as per your likes. I’m going to pen down how I made it this time.

2 medium red bell peppers
1 tomato diced
1/2 red onion diced
2 tbsp. olive oil
1 tsp. ginger garlic paste
1 tsp salt, chili powder, turmeric powder
1/2 cup roasted cauliflower rice (variation: brown rice or quinoa)
Few cubes of paneer

1. In 2 tbsp. olive oil sauté onions for a few minutes or until golden brown.
2. Add ginger garlic paste and cook for another minute.
3. Add chopped tomatoes, salt, chili powder, turmeric powder and cook for 5 – 6 minutes.
4. Add grated or finely chopped paneer and cook for the mixture for 2 more minutes and remove from heat.
5. Slice off the tops of each bell pepper, remove seeds and clean out the pepper thoroughly. Lightly grease the pepper with olive oil on the insides.

6. Carefully spoon mixture into hollowed-out peppers and top with grated paneer.
7. Place it in the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes on low temperature, or until the peppers are tender. Alternatively you can cook in a non-stick sauce-pan with the lid covered.

And my red outfit for today is here..
