bell pepper curry

Everybody loves mirch bajji in Andhra with a little variations based on the districts.I have my own version of bell pepper in a bajji like flavour.For this I used light green peppers in the grocery store not the regular peppers.This makes the curry more tasty as the skin is not that thick like the regular peppers and curry doesn't become live a gravy.

To prepare this we need 2 light green peppers which are long and cut into pieces
1 tablespoon ajwain seeds
chilli powder
1.5 teaspoons chick pea flour
Add oil in a kadai and add ajwain seeds and wait for them to splutter.Then add these peppers along with salt and turmeric powder.cover with a lid and dont stir too much ,you might end up having a paste like curry.After it cooks add chilli powder and a little chick pea flour/besan to it and let it cook for sometime.This can be served with chapathi or rice when hot and enjoy the flavour of mirchi bajji.
Alternatively you can try adding roasted sesame seeds and jeera powder as well to create a different flavour.

  2. Looks simple to prepare..will try this sometime soon

  3. Never thought of making a curry with bell pepper, always used it in sambars only...nice idea

  4. Wow...this looks real easy to prepare.Thanks for sharing.

  5. This sounds great. I love anything curried. I bet it would be good with some jasmine rice. You should submit it to my Veg Head carnival :)
