Capsicum Tomato Curry

Print version of Capsicum Tomato Curry
Capsicum Tomato Curry

A recipe you can serve at a potluck with any flavored rice or Naan or simple phulkas. The nutty flavor of peanuts and sesame seeds mingles well with the tart taste of tomatoes and sweetness of capsicums. Do not omit kasuri methi as it adds a bright flavor to the dish. Makes for a good side with Aloo Biryani and comes together quick and easy.

  • Aruna

    Hello Shailaja,
    Just wanted to let you know actually what a service you are doing to the ‘kitchen challenged’ through your site :). The way you make the process simple by numbering the steps, the tempting photographs and of course the awesome results i get at the end of it all keep me addicted to your site! I rarely cooked before marriage and still cooking is more like a chemistry lab to me.Your site has been a real help. The capsicum tomato was so simple and is a total rocker!

    Just one small suggestion. Whenever you post a non-veg dish, could you please include a veggie substitute as well. I am tempted to try many of your non-veg dishes. But often confused if my veggie substitute will work.
    Anyway, thanks for the excellent work!

    I tried your capsicum tomato curry, it turned out very well, very simple yet delicious recipe. Good one.

    I tried this curry and it came out very well. I prepared it as a side dish with Vegetable fried rice. I used red & yellow bell peppers along with green peppers. The sweet and hot taste blended very well.

    Thanks for sharing it.
