Capsicum Masala

I have prepared this capsicum masala 2days back and i didn't get the time to post.This capsicum masala goes great with any fried rice or rotis.This is semi dry recipe and it will not be liquid.I made first time this masala it came really delicious and yummy and we finished with in an hour.Usually we use capsicum in fried rice.Actually i have brought this capsicum for making fried rice.I did rice and with the remaining capsicum i made this capsicum masala.

Capsicum-2medium nos
Chili Powder-1tsp
Coriander Powder-1tsp

Cinnamon Stick-2nos


Cumin Seeds-1tsp

Ginger Garlic Paste-1tsp
Onion - 1large no.

Grated Coconut-1/4cup

Poppy Seeds-1bsp

Green Cardamom-4nos

Coriander leaves

Curry Leaves



Salt to taste

Roast dry and Grind:

Poppy seeds
Cinnamon stick

Grated Coconut


Cut Capsicum into 1 inch pieces and shallow fry this in a little oil, remove and keep it aside. Chop onions extremely fine or make a coarse paste in a blender.

Here i have not done onions into paste , i have used chopped onions.In the oil that is remaining in the pan after shallow frying capsicum, add the cumin seeds and the chopped onions to it and fry till they turn into golden colour.

Add the turmeric and ginger garlic paste,fry for few mints till the raw smell goes. After a little while add the red chili powder and fry for a while. Now add the grounded paste to the onions in the pan. Add the coriander powder along with it.Now, add the shallow fried capsicum to it and mix it up well.

Simmer the flame so that all the masalas will cook with the capsicum for another 15 min. When the oil starts oozing out sprinkle coriander leaves and switch off the flame. Eat with rotis\parathas\rice.
