aloo capsicum recipe

this is a punjabi recipe of making aloo shimla mirch. a dry vegetable recipe that has no liquids. besides the capsicum and potatoes, just a few indian spice powders are used in this dish. no onions, no tomatoes and no ginger or garlic. this is also a no onion and no garlic recipe. another rich variation of this recipe is this potato capisum curry recipe with a semi dry gravy.

i first had this spiced dish back at my in law’s place. i am not so fond of capsicum and rarely use them in recipes, even indo chinese ones, where capsicum is almost added.

however, this aloo capsicum sabji recipe is an exception to the rule. I make this often and is one dish where is much relished in the family. apart from this dish, other recipes which i make with capsicum are:

this aloo capsicum sabji goes well with chapatis or phulkas or parathas. it can also be served as a side dish with dal-rice combination too.
