Capsicum Masala or Capsicum Sabji/Subzi


If the Subji is attractive to look people volunteer to eat food and if its taste is very good they ask for more. Capsicum subji is yet another of my recipes which is loved by my family and asked for frequently made. I make this dish look very eye catching by adding colourful vegetables. Its taste is enriched with the different masala powders I put. You too can follow my recipe and get accolades from your family. Serve with plain rice or chapathi, roti, kulcha, naan.

  1. I’ve been looking for a bell pepper recipe ever since we had a similar curry in an Indian restaurant. Yours is better than the one at the restaurant. I had to substitute the Kitchen King Masala Powder for a different masala powder since you can not find the kitchen king brand in the United States. Thanks for making your blog. I’m married to an Indian guy from Bangalore so now after stumbling over your blog I can cook him some south Indian food.

  2. Mam,

    Till now I have been doing only fries (not deep fries) till now. As I was assuming sabzi/curry will take more time and effort.
