Capsicum Curry

I wanted to try a different recipe with Capsicum this time as I mostly use chilly powder in my preparation. So this recipe is based on a fresh prepare masala with Tomato, red chillies and cumin seeds. You can substitute capsicum with any other vegetable in this recipe.

Preparation Time: 30 minutes

1. Capsicum - 3
2. Onion - 2 medium sized
3. Tomato - 2 medium sized
4. Red Chillies - 4 (adjust it according to your spice level)
5. Cumin seeds - 1/2 tablespoon
6. Ginger/garlic paste - 1/2 tablespoon
7. Salt - to taste
8. Oil - 2 tablespoon

1. Grind tomatoes, red chillies, ginger/garlic paste and cumin seeds into a paste. Dont add water as tomates will make the paste watery.
2. Chop onions into fine pieces and capsicum into medium dices.
3. Heat oil in a pan and when hot add onions and saute until it becomes golden brown.
4. Now add the ground paste and saute for 2 to 3 minutes.
5. Add Capsicum and little water and cook the capsicum in the mixture by closing a lid. Cook in a medium flme for 10 to 12 minutes.

Garnish it with coriander leaves and spicy capsicum curry is ready to eat. It can be serve with Rice/Rotis.

1. To enrich the taste, you can add 3 to 4 strings of coriander leaves along with other ingredients to prepare the paste.
2. You can also add all colored capsicums to make the dish colorful and attractive.


  1. Since the day I read this , I wanted to try it. I made this yesterday and shared with a couple of friends too. It was wonderful with dosa and with rice too. Different than the ususal style.
    Thanks Kalyani :)

  2. The recipe is really good. But most of the menus are just South Indians. Some recipes in North Indian dishes which goes with Roti/Chapati viz. Paneer Items with curry and Gravy will be interesting. I am basicallyn a South Indian settled in Delhi. I shall be too happy to read your new blogs on Sambar Mixed Rice,bissibela etc.
