Capsicum and Potato Subzi Recipe

One of my favourites as it goes well with Roti or Rice, this Capsicum and Potato Subzi is quick and easy to make. Delicious and fragrant with hing/asafoetida that is used in the seasoning, it will leave you asking for more.

Ingredients :

  • 2 large Capsicums
  • 2 large Potatoes
  • 1 tsp chilly powder
  • A pinch of turmeric
  • 1/4 tsp hing/asafoetida
  • Salt
  • 2 tbsps oil
  • 1 tsp mustard
  • Oil for frying the potatoes

Method :

Deskin and wash the potatoes thoroughly. Slice them into wedges. Apply salt on them and keep them aside for about five minutes. Meanwhile chop the Capsicum into one inch squares. Keep aside. Heat oil in a pan. Squeeze out the potatoes and deep fry them to a golden yellow. Drain them on tissue paper. Heat 2 tbsps oil. Add a tsp of mustard and after it splutters add the hing. Toss. Drop in the Capsicum pieces, salt, turmeric and chilly powder. Mix well. Add the fried potato wedges. Mix thoroughly and cook till done on a slow flame. . I prefer transferring it into the microwave as one needn’t worry about it getting burnt. Serve hot with Roti or Dal rice.
