Aloo Capsicum Subji ~ Potato Bell Pepper Curry ( Step- by - Step)

When you don't have the routine main course ingredient, serve your sides with what ever you have handy, that still tastes good. As my fridge showed up empty for Roti, I have served this wonderful Aloo Capsocum Subji with some Pita Bread, and the Dinner was light and Delicious.... Here is the Recipe, Enjoy!
Potato Bell Pepper Curry


Ingredients:
Potato - 2 medium
Tomato -  2 medium
Bell Pepper (Capsicum) - 1 Large
Onion - 1/2 medium
green chili - 1
cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp
ginger garlic paste - 1 tsp
salt - 1 tsp
black pepper - 1/2 tsp
red chili powder - 1/2 tsp
garam masala - 1/2 tsp
Oil - 1 Tbsp
Cilantro - 1 Tbsp



Method:
Peel the potatoes and chop them into small cubes. Chop the Onions and Green Chili.
Heat the oil in the Kadai or no-stick pan. Add cumin seeds. once they splutter add ginger garlic paste.
Add the Chopped Onions and Green Chili. Once onions become translucent, add the chopped Potato.
Let them cook until medium soft ( 4 to 5 min) and add salt.

Mean while take the stem and seeds out of the Bell Pepper and cut into large 1 inch squares. Heat the non-stick pan and add sprinkle some oil or spray pam. add the Bell pepper pieces and saute them on high until they charred on the edges. This effect gives the nice flavor to your curry.
Charred Bell Peppers


Add tomato to the potato and onion in the pan. 


 Add black pepper powder, red chili powder and let it simmer until it becomes thick.


Now add garam masala and mix it well. taste and adjust the seasonings. Add the Bell Pepper and Cilantro and let it cook for2 min, until all the spices are mixed well. 

Switch off the Heat and Serve hot with White Rice or Roti. Today as I don't have roti handy, I have served with some whole wheat Pita Bread, and that turned out to be a one healthy dinner. Enjoy!


This much sun we have around dinner time 7:30 p.m here in Dallas, esp in Summer. :-D
Tips:
  • Don't overcook the Capsicum, always it should sauted on high to retain it's color and crunchness. 
  • Black Pepper enhances the capsicum flavor, I always use black pepper along with Bell Pepper. 
  • Charred Effect is the critical for the perfect taste in this recipe.


Take care until we meet here again...-Mythreyi
