Capsicum/Bell Pepper Sambhar



Capsicum Sambhar2
Decoration: Used small onions, capsicum and coriander stems to arrange the creeper


Capsicum or bell pepper is one of my most favorite vegetable. Adding a little of it to any curry or sambhar would give an alluring aroma that I am crazy of.

So this is one of my personal on top of the list sambhar always. :)



Capsicum Sambhar

Ingredients:

Capsicum/bell pepper - 2 nos
Thoor dhall - 1/4 cup
Small onions - 1/2 cup
Sambhar chilly powder - 1 tblsp
Tamarind paste - 2 tblsp
Jaggery - 1 tsp
Asafoetida - a pinch
Curry leaves
Coriander leaves
Salt - for taste

Method:

Cook dhall in pressure cooker and keep it aside. In a pan take a tsp of oil, crackle mustard seeds and then add the capsicum and small onions and saute for a while. Now add the cooked dhall, tamarind paste, jaggery, sambhar chilly powder, asafoetida, salt, coriander leaves and curry leaves to it. Add little water to it if it is too thick. Let this boil for a while.

Hey,
I have to say I like that "onion stalk" better than the Sambhar. Your creativity is contagious. These days when I am posting, I take the effort to present it well because of you and a couple others who ace in the creativity arena. Neat!
