A Tasty Capsicum Side Dish In 15 Minutes

This is an easy and simple curry that takes about 10-15 minutes to make. The ingredients used are the bell pepper, chickpea flour, red chili powder, onion, turmeric (optional), and salt. I believe all these ingredients are normally available in the kitchen. Hence, making this yummy curry is much easier with the ready ingredients!!

Sautéing is the best way to cook bell pepper because that way the peppers retain all of their health benefits. This recipe is full of bell pepper and chickpea flour flavors. You can use it as a side dish for pancakes or for boiled rice.
