Masala Bell Pepper (Capsicum)

Bell pepper is also known as capsicum or shimla mirch. Masala bell pepper with great blend of spices, makes a very enjoyable side dish. This can complement any meal. Masala bell pepper can be served with roti, paratha or puries. I enjoy this with side of dal fry and plain rice.

This recipe will serve 4.

  1. before i ask my question bellow i would like to just say i am loving the recipes you are very generously sharing with us Manjula. thank you so much.

    can anyone help me please.

    I am wondering what exactly is coconut powder.

    the only thing i can find with similar name is coconut milk powder, but i am guessing that is not what i am looking for.

    is it just desicated coconut or something else?
