potato capsicum recipe

here is a simple homely punjabi recipe, i make with potatoes and capsicum to go with rotis or chapatis. the recipe also goes well in a tiffin box. this is not a spicy sabzi. for a spicier taste, you can increase the red chili powder and garam masala powder.

to save time, i have sauteed the potatoes in oil. you can also boil them first or you can also cook the potatoes along with the capsicum. for some crunch, i add cashews but you can skip them. another recipe i make with capsicum and potato is this dry sabzi of aloo capiscum. for more delicious capsicum recipes, you can check this collection of 25 capsicum recipes.
