Quick Aloo Capsicum

Hi friends,
So after that chicken recipe yesterday let's get back to an easy vegetarian dish.Today I was feeling too lazy to go to the market.

Enters Sujata
She - Bhabhi, aap bazaar nahi gaaye ?
Me - Nahi, kal jaoongi.
She - Phir aaj kya pakana hai?
Me - Aloo aur capsicum hai, uski  sabzi  banate hai.

After all cooking up a good dish is not about many ingredients, we can make a lip smacking dish if cooked the right way.  Check the easy recipe below.


250 grams capsicum
2-3 potatoes
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp red chilli powder
1 tsp dhania - jeera powder
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1 tbsp white or black vinegar
A pinch of sugar
2 tsp cooking oil
Chopped coriander leaves
Salt to taste


1. Wash and chop the capsicum and potatoes in half inch cubes.
2. Take a wok and put 2 tbsp oil in it. In hot oil add the jeera and let it give out an aroma.
3. Quickly saute the potato cubes in the wok. Don't allow the potatoes to stick to the bottom.

4. Add the chopped capsicum, dry spices and salt.
5. Cover the vessel and cook for 5-7 minutes. Open to check if done.
6. Now add the vinegar and sugar and stir in. Shut the gas and let it cool with lid on.
7. Once slightly cool add the chopped coriander as garnish.
8. Serve hot with roti. It can be enjoyed with plain dal - chawal and some mango pickle.

Cooking Suggestion

If the taste of vinegar is not liked, then substitute it for lime.
Also see that the capsicum is not over cooked. Make potato cubes smaller than the capsicum so they cook faster.
