Well, ok, this is technically not 100% Indian but it’s got some spices in it so I’d like to say it’s a hybrid dish. It’s another simple dish but a delicious one nonetheless.
So, start by slicing your capsicums up. I usually slice them up into inch square or slightly larger. You can use mixed colored capsicums or just one color. I often just use yellow ones as it highlights the spices visually.
1. Start by frying some mustard and cumin seeds. Once the mustard seeds start to pop add some garlic.
2. Fry till the garlic turns light brown then add some ginger and onions. Stir and fry till the onions get soft.
3. Now add the capsicums, mix it well then put in a half a tablespoon of butter or slightly more.
4. Mix it really well so the capsicum is well covered in butter.
5. Add salt to taste and also some crushed black pepper.
6. Keep stirring it on a medium to slightly high heat. You want the capsicum to get soft and a little burnish brown also adds to the taste. Once you get to this point you’re done. Dish it out and eat.
Enjoy! (If you like the recipe please click the “Like” button here. And leave a comment if you are inspired.)
