Potato Capsicum fry

This is another spicy side dish which can be served along with rice or roti. Unlike the other fries, this will take less time as we boil/steam the potatoes (time management) before frying them.
Potato and capsicum fry

Capsicum 1 – Large diced into small cubes
Potato – 3 – Medium diced into small cubes
Onion – 2 chopped into small pieces
Turmeric – 2 pinches
Coriander chopped – 1 tbsp
Mustard + Cumin – 1 tsp

For Spicy Powder
Roasted Chick pea – 2 tbsp
Grated dry coconut – 2 tbsp
Chili powder – 1 tsp
Garlic pods – 2-3
Grind them all together into coarse powder.


Steam potato cubes until they are half boiled. You can also microwave them without adding any water for 3-4 minutes by stirring in between. Heat a pan with oil. When it is hot enough add mustard + Cumin and then onion and fry for a minute. Add the steamed potato and capsicum along with some salt and turmeric. Bear in mind to add little bit salt as we are going to add the spicy powder as well which has also got some salt. Fry them on medium flame until they are done. Sprinkle some coriander and the spicy powder and toss every thing and cover the pan with lid for a minute or so until all the flavours are incorporated. Remove from the fire. Can be served with rice or roti.
