capsicum fry recipe

most fry or stir fry recipes are easy to prepare. they make for a quick side dish with chapatis or can be served with a main course too.

in this recipe of capsicum fry, i have also added potatoes. though you can skip potatoes, and just add more capsicum. this potato capsicum fry also can be packed in the tiffin box with some chapatis. the recipe serves 1, but can be easily doubled or tripled. the recipe is also a no onion no garlic recipe.

in this dish, a bit of extra mustard seeds are added which is the highlight of this recipe. hence their flavor is felt. so do make sure that they crackle before you add the other ingredients. or else you will get raw texture in them while eating. do use the small variety of mustard seeds and not the large ones. also in the recipe, the capsicum is not completely softened. there is a slight crunch in them.
