Aloo capsicum recipe is easy-to-make, light yet tastes delicious. It is prepared with capsicum, potato, tomato, and a blend of a few common Indian spices. A perfect regular side dish that can be made within 30 minutes.
To make this aloo capsicum recipe, besides capsicum, potato, and tomato you need a few common Indian spices. It is a dry sabzi. Since no extra water has been used in this. To get the best taste, it is important to make sure the capsicum should not be cooked too much.
I make this dry aloo capsicum sabzi very often. Just wondering why it took me so long to post this. I used to saute the onions and potatoes simultaneously in this. However, the potatoes can be fried separately. But this step makes the cooking process easier and adds a beautiful taste to the potatoes. Adjust the spices as per your tastebuds.
Serve this recipe as a side dish to roti or paratha or with steamed rice and dal.
