Capsicum Masala

Capsicum Masala is one thing that I wanted to try since a long time..... I had come across quite a few recipes but none of them seemed very impressive to me. I finally decided to ask mom and stick to her traditional recipe and it worked!! Here it goes....


1 Onion chopped into thin strips
1 Small Tomato, halved
1 Small potato
1 Large Capsicum chopped into 1" pieces
1tsp Jeera
1tsp Ginger/Ginger-garlic paste
2" Cinnamon stick
3-4 Cloves
1tsp Soy Sauce(optional)
1tsp Tomato ketchup(optional)
1tsp Garam masala
1tsp Chilli powder
2tbsp Oil
salt as per taste


  1. Take 1tsp oil in a kadai and fry the sliced onions for a minute.

  2. Blend the above onions, tomato, ginger paste, cinnamon and cloves into a smooth paste using a blender.

  3. Meanwhile wash, peel and chop potatoes into 1" cubes. Boil them on stove with salt and water until they are cooked.

  4. Take the remaining oil in the kadai and add jeera.

  5. Add the capsicum pieces after the jeera seeds splutter. Add very little water; cover and cook until Capsicum pieces change colour and become tender.

  6. To this add the onion-tomato paste, soy sauce-tomato ketchup and the cooked potatoes.

  7. Add garam masala ,chilli powder and salt. Garam masala would already have some spicy conent in it;So, add only little chili powder initially and you can add more later, as per your tatse. Add water if required and boil for 2-3 mins.

  8. Garnish with chopped cilantro and serve hot with puris/rotis or even rice. Enjoi!!
