Potato Capsicum Subji / Urulaikilangu Kudaimilagai Subji / Side dish for chapathi

Potatoes and capsicum...both are my favourite veggies...the slight crunchy capsicum and starchy potato gives a nice texture difference to this dish...I saw a recipe here and liked it's simplicity...this subji can be done in a jiffy..While pressure cooking the potatoes, the gravy can be made...Then add it and give a boil..we're done..Do try and enjoy...


Potato3 or 4 small
Green bell pepper/
Tomato2 medium
ginger garlic paste1 tsp
cumin seed/jeera1 tsp
Cashew pieces1 tblsp
Red onion
Turmeric powder1/2 tsp
Red chili powder1 tsp
Kasoori methi1 pinch
Cilantrofor garnish
Jaggery/brown sugar1  pinch
Saltas needed


Make a paste out of tomato,cumin,ginger garlic paste and cashew..In a pan,heat a 1/2 tsp oil and saute the cubed bell pepper pieces slightly...It should be slightly crunchy...keep it aside..

In the same pan, again heat some oil and saute finely chopped onion...After it turns transparent, add turmeric and red chilli powder and fry for 5 to 6 minutes...Then add the ground paste and little water and let it boil...add salt and jaggery...then simmer for 5 minutes...

Pressure cook the potatoes and cube them just like bell peppers...After the gravy oozes little oil on sides add the veggies and mix well...

Let the gravy come to boil and add crushed kasoori methi and switch off the flame...Garnish with chopped cilantro...(Add a little cooking cream if you want for more rich gravy...)

Wanna try these:
