CHEESY SOYA IN CAPSICUM CUPS

Cheese filled snacks are liked not only by kids but also adults who loves to have dairy products. My family is crazy of milk products and when it comes to cheese they will adore like anything. On my today's recipe I prepared soya masala which is filled on the bed of capsicum and is topped with cheese. This tastes super awesome and is the best ever filling snack. Instead of soya, you can add any type of ingredient or leftover veggies as well.
INGREDIENTS

1 Capsicum

1/2 Cup Cooked soya

1 Pearl Onion

1/4 tsp Ginger Garlic paste

Pinch of Pepper pd

Salt to taste

1 tsp Butter.

Handful of Grated Cheese.

METHOD

Cut the cleaned capsicum veggie and discard the seeds. Sprinkle some salt and place them on a baking sheet. Heat butter in a oil and fry the onion for few seconds. Then add ginger garlic paste and saute till the raw smell disappears. Add pepper powder and remove from flame. Let it cool down for 5 min. Now fill the soya in the capsicum cups and garnish with grated cheese. Bake them at 180 degree for 10 min.

Serve hot.

ENJOY!!
