CAPSICUM DRY CURRY
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.

PREPARATION TIME:10 MINUTES. COOKING TIME:15 MINUTES. SERVES:3-4
INGREDIENTS:

CAPSICUM 2 BIG
ONION 1-2
REDCHILLI POWDER 3/4 TSP
CORIANDER POWDER 1/2 TSP
JEERA POWDER 1/4 TSP
CUMIN SEEDS 1/4 TSP
OIL 2 TSP
BESAN (KADALAIMAAVU) 4 TBLSP
SALT TO TASTE
GARAM MASALA 2 PINCHES(OPTIONAL)
CURRY LEAVES FEW (OPTIONAL)

  • Add the besan (kadalaimaavu) and dry roast it in a low flame for 7-9 minutes.
  • Now add in the chopped capsicums and add the red chilli powder, coriander powder, jeera powder, salt and garam masala.
Besan with spices
  • Let this cook in a medium low flame. Stir in between without getting burnt.
  • Saute well till the besan gets cooked and leaves a nice aroma.
  • Do not cover and cook as it will leave water and make the curry soggy.
