Capsicum we generally add for paneer gravies or other onion tomato based gravies. We make south indian style Sambar with Capsicum too. I have already posted a Capsicum dry curry too. This recipe was published in the Aval Vikatan Supplement book which i contributed 3 months back. A very easy and rich gravy with capsicum and a perfect side dish for roti too.
