Green Peppers – Eat Smart Recipe!

Capsicum stir fry is a simple stir fry that I tasted at my friend Sudha’s house. It was so simple and the flavour was mouth-watering that I couldn’t wait for the dinner to be served. I just loved it and tried it the next day in my kitchen.

It turned out equally good and yummy. It has now everyone’s favourite in our house too. At least once in a week, I do make capsicum stir fry.

I generally cook capsicum in gravy and also use it abundantly for pulao and other dishes. This is the first time that I tried capsicum in a different recipe.

Thank you, Sudha for this lovely recipe!
