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 .
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
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.
