Shimla Mirch Aaloowaali ! (Capsicum & Potato in a subtle dry masala)

Shimla Mirch Aaloowaali is one subtle flavoured dish that goes superb with chapathi and roti.I love to prepare this mainly because of the aroma it releases.If you are in search of something rocking to go with usual rotis,do check this.This is my entry for Blogging Marathon Day 2.Do visit the page to see what my fellow marathoners are upto.

Ingredients

2 capsicums,deseeded & cut into fingers
1 potato,peeled and cut into fingers
1 tomato,chopped
1 tomato,deseeded and sliced into four
1 large onion,sliced
1 piece ginger,chopped finely
3/4 tsp cumin seeds
1/2 tsp chilly powder
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp coriander powder
1/4 tsp amchoor powder/dry mango powder
1/4 tsp punjabi garam masala
salt,oil as required

Method

Heat oil in a medium skillet and splutter cumin seeds.Reduce the heat and roast the onion slices till light brown.Add ginger to this and roast for one minute.Now add the chilly,coriander,turmeric,amchoor and garam masala powders along with salt to this and roast till raw smell vanish.Drop in the chopped tomatoes and roast for 3 minutes.Add potatoes to this and roast for two more minutes.

Add little water and cook covered till the potatoes are soft and cooked.Now add capsicum and mix well.Cook uncovered for 8-10 minutes stirring occasionally till the capsicum go soft,yet crispy.Check salt and finally add the deseeded tomato pieces.Mix well and switch off the stove.Serve hot with roti/chapathi.
