You have less time in hands or you are feeling bored to do something elaborate, but still want to have something tasty ( this is always me in the house) and of course you have a few capsicums in hand and most important, you like them, then this Capsicum Saute is for you. The preparation time is very less, just slicing the capsicums, and the cooking time is less than 15 minutes. A nice curry which can be had with rotis or mixed with rice or even stuffed in some bread, tastes good whichever way you choose..
Need To Have
- Capsicum/Green Bell Pepper - 4 medium sliced
- Red Chilly Powder - 1/2 teaspoon
- Coriander Powder - 1 teaspoon
- Turmeric Powder - 1/4 teaspoon
- Asafoetida - 1/4 teaspoon
- Garam Masala - 1/4 teaspoon
- Mustard Seeds - 1/2 teaspoon
- Salt - to taste
Heat some oil, add the mustard seeds, when it starts spluttering add the capsicum slices, cover and cook for 3 mins.
Remove the lid, and add the asafoetida, salt, turmeric, chilly, coriander and garam masala powders. Mix, reduce the heat and keep sauteing for about 5 minutes, till the capsicum pieces look a little wilted. Remove and serve it warm with rice or rotis.
You can do this with a mixture of different colored capsicums.
In this curry the capsicum should not be crunchy, they should be soft.
