ALOO CAPSICUM MASALA | ALOO SIMLA MIRCH RECIPE | SIDE DISH FOR ROTI


Aloo Simla Mirch is a very flavourful, onion tomato based masala which i can say a very perfect side dish for Roti. This Aloo Simla Mirch , we tried in a Indian restaurant in Hanoi (Vietnam) during our holiday. I wanted to recreate a similar one at home and tried this few days back at home . It was a super duper hit and the taste was close to the one which we tasted in the restaurant. I have few restaurant style recipes coming up here in the coming weeks.
