Aloo Capsicum Recipe

Aloo capsicum recipe, how to make aloo shimla mirch recipe.

Aloo capsicum or potato and capsicum recipe is a punjabi style sabzi best served with roti, phulka or naan. This easy side dish pairs well with tomato raita,

Aloo capsicum subzi is semi dry and if you want to make little gravy add boiled water accordingly. I like the capsicum to retain their crunch, so I do not cook them much; but if you like them to be cooked just simmer for a min or two but I have to warn you that the beautiful green color will be lost.

On a side note, you can add some boiled peas or cauliflower or the vegetables of your choice to make it a vegetable sabzi.

I know I have been absent for sometime; my daughter Nidhi, finished her plus two and I was settling her in college and hostel. Things were really fast and unpredictable and with the grace of God she is settled at NIT Calicut with the branch of her choice.  Though her college is just 20 km away; I will miss her and is coming in terms with her absence (and her chatter) as she has never stayed anywhere without me for more than night. So, the letting go process is painful but yes, I have to come in terms with moves on.

Okay! back to the recipe; this one is always a life saver when I have vegetarian guests; the masalas in the recipe takes it to the next level.

I hope the video I made will help you more.
