Capsicum Curry ~ Bell Peppers in a Gravy!

Its been raining cats and dogs since last night. The AC was switched off in favor of the cool breeze that was coming in. And when it was morning, I didn't' even feel it was already dawn, as it was still very dark and everybody at home still slumbering very deeply. I opened up to a morning that was very chill and rain still lashing away. Schools and Colleges were declared holiday, but Konda was insisting I call her friend's Mom to confirm. Though it was still raining when it was time for the boys to leave, we thought we would send them. They simply enjoyed getting out in the rain, Peddu was trying to say eellu eelu referring to water. Athamma went to drop them in the school and came back to say that they enjoyed the ride.

All the way to office, it was still raining and though the stagnant water at most places were dirty, I enjoyed the rain. The office was empty other than handful of them and generally didn't feel like a busy day. I somehow spent the day off, to hurry back home. We have the Cyclone, which is expected to be for tomorrow too. But the cyclone wasn't really bad as expected.

Coming to today's recipe, as I said I have exhausted all Rice based dishes. So had to think of something else.

Ingredients Needed:

Capsicum - 1 medium
Mustard seeds - 1/4 tsp
Cumin Seeds - 1/4 tsp
Onion - 1 medium
Tomato - 1 medium
Ginger Garlic paste - 1/2 tsp
Chili powder - 1 tsp
Coriander powder - 1 tsp
Turmeric powder a pinch
Coconut paste - 2 tsp
Groundnut powder - 2 tsp
Coriander leaves for garnish
Salt to taste
Oil - 1 tsp

Method to prepare:

Heat oil in a kadai, splutter mustard and jeera. Then saute onions till pink. Add ginger garlic paste and saute till its brown.

Then add the Capsicum and simmer for 5 mins with lid. Then add the chopped tomatoes and the spice powders and salt. Simmer again for 15 mins, till the capsicum are tender.


Then add 1 cup water and bring to boil. Stir in the coconut paste and groundnut powder, combine all well and simmer again for 5 - 10 mins.

When the gravy is thick enough, garnish with coriander leaves and remove.
