Method
For the crêpes

  1. Combine the plain flour, cornflour, milk, salt and ½ cup of water in a deep bowl and mix well till the batter is smooth.
  2. Heat a non-stick tava (griddle), pour ¼ cup of the batter on it and spread in a circular motion to make a thick pancake of 100 mm. (4") diameter.
  3. Cook the crêpes on a medium flame, using a little butter, till it turns light brown in colour from both the sides.
  4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 to make about 4 more crêpes. Keep aside.

For the filling

  1. Heat the oil in a broad non-stick pan, add the green chillies and sauté on a medium flame for a few seconds.
  2. Add the red capsicum and sauté on a medium flame for 2 minutes.
  3. Remove the pan from the flame, allow the mixture to cool for 5 minutes.
  4. Add the paneer, salt and pepper and mix well. Keep aside.

For the capsicum sauce

  3. Add the capsicum-milk mixture, salt and pepper, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 3 to 4 minutes or till the sauce thickens. Keep aside.

How to proceed
