Capsicum and Potato side dish ~ Quick side dish


I just love capsicum. It lends a complete different flavor to simple dishes. This is one such dish that can be made on a weekday with no much effort, yet a tasty option. Have it with Chapathi or simple rice and dal :) I learnt this from my dear friend S. If you love capsicum then this dish is for you. There is no exact measurements for this dish just play with flavours as you wish :)
Here is what's needed :
2 medium green Capsicums thinly sliced
2 medium Potatoes thinly sliced
1 medium Onions thinly sliced
2 medium Tomatoes roughly chopped
1/4 tsp jeera
1 tbsp ginger garlic finely chopped and crushed
1/2 tsp Turmeric powder
Red chilli powder, Garam masala powder and Kitchen king masala to taste
Salt to taste
Oil
Procedure:
1) Heat oil. Add jeera. When it splutters add onion and fry until done.
2) Add the powders,capsicum and potato. Fry well for 2-3 mins.
3) Add chopped tomato and salt. Mix well, cover and cook till done without adding water.
4) Garnish with chopped coriander leaves and serve hot.
