Dora, capsicum is bell pepper and the green colored one is used. Kadhai is a wok. Sorry about not making this clear in the recipe. Hope you try this recipe. Thank you.

Rajan, this is one of your simplest recipes, being that I know where to find all but on ingredient. What is capsicum? And what is a kadhai?
