  • Bell peppers prep-Give a slit lengthwise from the center as such that if you  fill the filling ,filling should not come out .remove the seeds and top portions too (I didn’t remove top portion ) .
  • Now Bell peppers is ready to stuff .
  • I applied little sriracha sauce all inside the bell peppers to give extra spicy falvour  ,but its totally optional .
  • Now one by one stuff cottage cheese filling inside the bell peppers in a generous amount (make sure you stuffed filling properly )  and keep aside .
  • Now heat the oil(1 tbsp ) in the cast iron skillet or pan (I used cast iron skillet)  .
  • Then slowly place bell peppers in to the pan ,close  the lid and cook for a minute .
  • Remove the lid cook for 2-3 minutes one side  then turn bell peppers on other side so that they are cooked from all side properly.(totally it takes 6-8 minutes because filling is already cooked ).
  • Now turn off the gas ,Transfer stuffed mini bell peppers in to serving plate .
  • Garmish it with some grated cottage cheese,carrot ,sesame seed and parsley.
  • Serve these bell peppers as a side dish or you can have this as full meal too .
