Capsicum besan poriyal

Capsicum has become my favourite vegetable off late. Aloo has now  been pushed to the second place after this one.We never used to get capsicum in my small town when I was young.So I was not aware of this vegetable much.Only after coming to chennai that may be in 2003 , I tasted this vegetable for the first time though I have heard a lot about it.I just fell in love with this vegetable and I have still not gotten up. One good thing about this vegetable is its so easy to cut, can be eaten raw, cooks faster and it blends well in any type of cuisine.

I badly wanted to make stuffed capsicum , but for some reason ended up making this fry .Ingredients are very similar to the one we use for stuffed capsicum but just the methodolgy is different.Guess what , this came out really well.

Ingredients :

Capsicum - 2 nos.
Onion - 1 no.
Besan powder - 2 tbsn.
oil - 3 tspn.
Salt to taste.


1. Dice capsicum into cubes and cut onions .
2. Heat oil in a  pan and once it is hot, add onion and saute for few minutes , then add diced capsicum, salt and stir fry nicely until capsicum is cooked but still it has to retain its crunchiness.
3. Meanwhile dry roast besan in a separate pan and finally add it to the cooked capsicum and fry it for 2 more minutes . Capsicum besan is ready .

Unquestionably believe that which you said. Your favorite justification appeared to be on the net
the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely
get irked while people think about worries that they
plainly do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the
whole thing without having side-effects , people can
take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks ageless male -
