Stir fried Green Capsicums

I am just back from Vasai. The camera is with Shrikant and he is on a shoot today. No idea when he will come back. So reserving a small portion for the photography which will probably happen only after he returns. Meanwhile, here’s the recipe.


  • 300 g green capsicums
  • 3 tbsp gram flour (besan)
  • 3 tbsp oil
  • 1/2 tsp mustard seeds
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
  • 2 tsp red chilli powder
  • 1 large tablespoon coriander powder
  • 1 tsp amchur or dry mango powder
  • 1 pinch asafoetida (hing)
  • Salt to taste

This is a simple yet scrumptious recipe which goes well with any kind of food. Whether it is rice or paranthas you are having this recipe serves as an excellent accompaniment. Besides the crispiness of the capsicums combined with the khamang (I don’t know what is khamang aroma called in English, I am sorry) flavor of roasted gram flour! Like I said, scrumptious! (And whaddya know… super easy to make too!)

Chop up the capsicums into cubes. Now heat the oil in a wok, add the mustard and when it starts crackling add all the dry spices and hing. Now add the capsicum and saute for a few minutes till the peppers change color ever so slightly. Now sprinkle the gram flour and roast for 3 minutes or until you get that roasted aroma of the gram flour. Add salt as per your taste and toss well.

Serve hot!!!

Happy Cooking!
