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.

Now it is so common and my kids also love paneer  I make several paneer dishes referring to books and recipes from friends.

Pav Bhaji Mumbai Style

Pav Bhaji is a Maharashtrian fast food dish that originated in Mumbai. This dish was originally created by a vendor for the mill workers who had very little time to have their lunch. Pav in Marathi means a small loaf of bread and Bhaji means a vegetable dish. I am very lucky to have a Maharashtrian friend who made this bhaji for a get together. I fell in so much love with it, the first thing I did was to get the recipe from her and tried it and the bhaji came out fabulous.

It is a healthy one pot meal, which nobody should miss. Here’s the Mumbai style bhaji with step by step photos…

So why do you have to wait, just enjoy…
