Capsicum Besan Sabji/Capsicum Fry with Chickpea Flour/Tri Colour Capsicum Fry

I am seriously fond of capsicums I thinks it’s because of its mild flavour, vibrant colour and so many more reasons. Botanically capsicums/bell peppers are fruits as they have seeds. But as they are widely used for cooking, so they are accepted as vegetables.  Capsicums have different names around the world, they are called as chilli peppers in Britain. In USA and Canada they are called as Bell peppers. In Australia and Asia they are known as Capsicums. The capsicums come in different colours like green, red, yellow, orange and even purple, though I am yet to see a purple one. I was really astonished when I read about purple capsicums. The stronger the color of capsicums, the higher the level of anti-oxidants in them. They have high content of vitamin A, C, B complex , E along with other important minerals needed for our body. Let’s all eat healthy and lead a healthy life. Please check out other Capsicum dishes here.
