Capsicum Mix

Go Green with CAPSICUM

This green wonder can be turned into a variety of dishes, e.g. fry, bhaji, pakora, coated with besan and fried. I decided to make a dry dish .

Ingredients -

Capsicum - 250 gms

Onions - 1 medium (chopped fine)

Tomatoes - 1 medium (chopped fine)

Haldi - 1/4 tsp

Chilli powder - 1 tsp (non - spicy)

Coriander powder - 1/2 tsp

Cumin seed (jeera) - 1/2 tsp (whole)

Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp

Ginger - garlic paste - 1 tsp

Cooking oil - 1 tbsp (for frying capsicum in a non-stick frying pan) + 1 cooking spoon for the kadai.

Salt - to taste

Process -

Chop the green capsicums into thin strips. Put a tablespoon of cooking oil in a frying pan and fry the capsicum till partially soft.

Put a kadai/cooking vessel on the other burner and add 1 cooking spoon of oil. Throw in the whole jeera and mustard seeds.

Add the chopped onions and fry well till golden brown. When done, add the chopped tomatoes and fry in the oil till soft.

Then add the other spices and ginger-garlic paste. Add a little water ( a tbsp full) and fry well.

When almost done and the oil separates, add the soft capsicum and keep mixing. Add salt. Continue mixing till you know everything has mixed well (said hello to each other :) )

Then serve hot and enjoy with hot, hot rotis.
