Potato, Tomato, and Capsicum Dry Curry

A Lazy Day Cooking

When I don't feel up to cooking for a long time, I like to make dry curries. For dry curry, you don't need ground masala paste. You can make use of dry spice powders here, which will cut down the cooking time. These spice powders are available in Indian stores.

I used tomato, potato, onion, and capsicum in this recipe. You can try with some other vegetables also. For these curries, tomato and onion are the common ingredients. I stir-fried the vegetables in oil and added spice powders. The curry came out awesome.

I share the recipe with you below.
