Capsicum Fry

Quick recipe for lunch today to go with Sambar and white rice.

Capsicum - 2 large cut into small cubes
Potato - 1 large boiled and water drained and crushed
Mustard seeds - 2 tsp
Cumin seeds - 2 tsp
Garlic - 2 cloves minced
Split urad Dal - 1 tsp
Dried red chillies - 1
Turmeric - pinch
Salt - to taste
Red chilli powder - to taste
Oil - as needed


Heat oil in a pan. Add mustard, cumin, urad dal and turmeric. Once mustard seeds start splattering add dried red chilli and add capsicum.
Add little bit salt enough for the capsicum and stir fry till soft. Add red chilli powder and saute for 1 minute. You can add 1/4 to 1/2 cup of water if you think capsicum is not cooked. I used the left over water from boiling potato.
Add the potato. I microwaved the potato in a glass bowl till the potatoes are soft. and then drained the water. Now mash the potato with just enough salt for the potato. It will come out like dry powder.

Saute the capsicum and potato for 2 minutes and turn the stove off.
