Red, Yellow and Green – Bell Pepper Curry

Eye catching and good looking, the 3 bell pepper curry is a flavorful, quick side dish to make.

1.Take one each of red, yellow and green bell peppers, cut each one into half. Remove the seeds inside and slice them thin lengthwise.

2.Heat one teaspoon of peanut oil in a wide pan. Toast pinch of each mustard seeds, cumin, minced garlic (popu).

3.Add and cook bell peppers, covered for about 5 minutes on medium-low.

4.Remove the lid; add pinch of turmeric, a tablespoon of spicy dalia powder (pappula podi) and salt to taste. Cook/saute them for another 5 minutes openly, on high heat, stirring often.

Serve hot with rice and dal or with chapatis.

  2. 3 rivers define Pittsburgh (Steelers), so the curry. Just like plain green bell pepper one, this curry is simple to make and taste great, Kay.

  6. Indira – that sounds fantastic! I’m always tempted to buy one of each color when I see those beautiful bell peppers (sometimes they have orange too!) – this would be the perfect way to use them. Thanks!

  7. That is so pretty!

    In the summer here, there are farmers who grow purple peppers, too. They would look pretty with the red, green, yellow and orange.

    Calico curry!

    I’ve yet to try the purple ones, Barbara, the colour looks so weird to me.:)

  8. Looking Good is Very Empowering

    I’d been having a little argument with myself about whether or not my little Blogher posts about low carb or low fat recipes were just a bit fluffy compared to the important issues that some of you were writing about, when suddenly I got it . . .

    Indira replies,
    Unless it’s related to food, I’m not very interested in answering any other tags, that’s my rule.
    Sorry Anthony, I’m going to take a pass, on this meme. Hope that’s ok.

  13. Indira – I made this last night and had it with dal and rice – it was delicious! Thanks again!

    Indira replies,
    Sorry, Cathy, I couldn’t reply to your earlier comments. I was out of town this weekend and your comments went down in my wordpress comments list.
    ‘Dalia’ – they look exactly like chana dal, but lighter in weight and taste also very different. They taste really good when freshly made and sometimes the store bought ones taste little bit stale. I hope you got a good one(fresh dalia) and enjoyed the taste.
    Thanks for trying out the recipe and I’m glad that it turned out good.:)

  14. Tastes as good as it looks. The “pappula podi ” touch makes this dish taste a lot different from the regular vegetable fry. To my surprise the red and orange peppers taste a little different from the regular green bell peppers. That’s a good enough reason for me to buy yellow and red bell peppers, apart from green bell peppers. Thank you for the recipe mam.

  15. Thank you for posting this recipe. It’s very easy to make and if you have the “pappula podi” ready it can be done in few minutes.
    Plus it is very tasty.
