Aloo Capsicum Sabji

Hi All....
Yesterday I made this recipe for lunch and it reminded me of my old days ......When I got married I didn't know anything to cook , before my marriage I bought few cooking books and brought them with me in my trousseau :-P LOL 

After marriage, I made dal makhani, shahi paneer, palak paneer etc impress my hubby :-) 
One day he came from office and asked me -"what have you cooked today for dinner?" I said - "chicken."
He said - "enough of all these dishes ...make something simple and easy to digest."

Now me in trouble :-( didn't learn anything before marriage. Mummy kept on saying learn cooking, learn cooking but I just ignored it.
I called her and asked few simple and easy recipes ....that time she blasted on me :-( but its OK.
This was the first simple and easy recipe which I made after my marriage.....So I wanted to share this with all the newly married and unmarried gals, so that they will not get scoldings from their moms :-)

2 green bell peppers (capsicum)
2 potatoes
1 big tomato (finely chopped)
1"ginger (grated)
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
1/2 tsp coriander powder
1/4 tsp garam masala
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
1/2 tsp cumin powder
1/4 tsp red chilly powder
Salt taste
1/4 tsp amchoor powder
A pinch of hing
2 tbsp oil


  1. Wash, de-seeded and cut capsicum into cubes.
  2. Peel potatoes and cut them into cubes.
  3. Heat oil in non-stick kadhai, add hing and cumin seeds. When hing and cumin splutters and tomatoes and ginger.
  4. Cook tomatoes till they become pulpy.
  5. Add all the dry masalas and mix well. Cook for 1-2 mins.
  6. Add capsicum and potatoes. Mix nicely.
  7. Cover it with lid and cook it on low flame for 10-15 mins.
  8. Keep stirring in between to avoid sticking of veggies.
  9. Remove from fire.
  10. Serve hot with paranthas or rotis.
