CAPSICUM DRY CURRY | CAPSICUM BESAN SUBZI

Capsicum |Bell pepper ,so far i have used in sambar, paneer curries and other north Indian side dish but never tried a recipe only with capsicum and especially a dry curry. This recipe i learnt from my friend who taught me the Spring onion curry and this capsicum curry was enjoyed by everyone at home even the  little one who hates capsicum. I served this curry with Jeera rice and dal tadka (recipe coming next) . Now let’s see how to make this capsicum besan subzi.
