An extremely uncomplicated recipe, it is a life saver when you have no idea what to make or when you have run out of veggies or other stuff.
Capsicum / Bell peppers - 2 medium sized, sliced lengthwise,
Onions - sliced lengthwise
Besan / Gram flour around ½ cup
( you might need more or less depending upon the moisture released by the bell peppers and theonions )
Jeera / Cumin seeds - a pinch
Haldi / Turmeric powder - a pinch
Red chilli powder
Hing / Asafoetida - a small pinch
Cooking oil - 1 tbsp
Sugar - to taste
Salt - to taste.
How to :
Heat oil in a kadahi or wok. Add the hing and the jeera.
Then add the onions and fry a little.
Add the capsicums and fry till they turn soft.
Add salt and sugar now.
Now add the besan and keep stirring.
Add the haldi and chilli powder.
Keep stirring till the besan absorbs all moisture.
Sprinkle a little water if necessary and keep stirring till besan is done.
( If it gets too moist with the water, add some more besan ... but fry it well after that ).
This will be a very dryish dish.
Great on the side with hot rotis and some dal.
I love it with dal & chawal too. :-)
