Recipe of Capsicum Masala

Ingredient Name Quantity Unit
Salt To Taste
Chilli Powder 1 Teaspoons
Turmeric 1/2 Teaspoons
Curry Leaves 8 Numbers
Onion - Large 1 Numbers
Coriander Powder 1.5 Tablespoons
Green Cardomom 2 Numbers
Cinnamon Stick 1/4 Stricks
Cloves 3 Numbers
Poppy Seeds 1 Tablespoons
Grated Cocunut 1/4 Cup
Capsicum 4 Piece
Oil 1.5 Tablespoons
Cumin Seeds 1 Teaspoons
Ginger Garlic Paste 1 Teaspoons
Coriander Leaves 2 Tablespoons


1. Cut Capsicum into 1 inch pieces and shallow fry this in a little oil, remove and keep it aside. 2. Chop onions(extremely fine) in a chopper or make a coarse paste in a blender along with curry leaves. 3. In the oil that is remaining in the pan after shallow frying capsicum, add the cumin seeds and the chopped onions to it. 4. Add the turmeric and ginger garlic paste. After a little while add the red chilli powder and fry for a while. 5. Grind the cocunut with cinnamon, cloves, cardomom and make a paste of it. Now add this paste to the onions in the pan. Add the coriander powder along with it. 6. 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 capcium for another 15 min. 7. When the oil starts oozing out spinkle coriander leaves and switch off the flame. This is a semi dry recipe so it will not be liquid. 8. Eat with rotis\parathas\rice.
