I have decided that I will cook any one veggie dish, from any of my blogger friend’s blog. So today I have selected Pari's blog and tried her very recent popular recipe of capsicum in red greavy.The detail recipe is here flambéed capsicum in red gravy .I would say, my other blogger friends who have not checked her this recipe or not tried then, please please try this. It is perfect one.

Since Padhu suggested me write down the recipe, I am putting my pen down for how I have prepared this:-


Preparation time: 15 minutes (Approximately)

Cooking time: 20 minutes (Approximately)

Serves-4 persons


Capsicum (Green bell pepper) - 4 cut in cubes

Onions-2 (Grind to a fine paste)

Ginger garlic paste-2 tsp

Tomatoes-3 (Grind to fine paste)

Unsalted Butter-2 tabs

Bay Leaves-2

Coriander powder-3 tsp

Cumin powder-1 tsp (I did not put because I was not having)

Turmeric powder- ½ tsp

Red Chilli Powder-3 tsp (the original recipe is with 2 tsp but I like bit spicy)

Garam Masala-1/2 tsp

Oil-3 tabs

Salt- to taste


• Heat 2 tabs oil in a pan and add bay leaves in this.

• Now add onion and ginger garlic paste in this and keep frying in low heat till masala starts leaving oil and the raw smell of masala goes off.

• Now add tomato paste in this and also add all dry masalas along with salt.

• Mix well and cook till it gets mixed up nicely.

• Keep aside.

• Now sprinkle some water on cubed capsicum.

• Heat a flat bottom pan which you can easily toss with capsicum.

• Add one tabs oil in this and keep flame high.

• Heat oil till smokes start coming from it.

• Now carefully add cubes capsicum in this hot oil (Do not reduce or switch off flame)

• Capsicum will catch fire immediately now toss them for few minutes.

• Remove and keep aside.

• In the same pan, heat butter till smoky point and then add cooked masala in this.

• Add cooked capsicum and cook for a min.

• Serve immediately.
