Capsicum masala curry recipe
Capsicum masala is a simple and tasty North Indian side dish for chapathi. It’s a very easy and quick recipe that can be made under 15 minutes with capsicum and tomato as major ingredients. Last week I packed roti/chapathi along with this capscium tomato curry and spicy buttermilk for Sendhil's lunch box. He loved it very much. For this recipe,I followed the basic North indian gravy recipe with tomatoes as base. So it resembled more like our South Indian Tomato thokku but tasted completely different. The consistency of this masala can be varied from gravy to curry as per your wish.For variations, green capsicum (Bell pepper) can be paired with aloo/potato,paneer or sweet corn to make it even more healthy n tasty. So,lets see how to make this easy,no grinding  simple capsicum masala curry recipe. Try it for chapathi. U will love it. Stay tuned for some more easy side dish recipes for roti !
