Besani Masala Shimla Mirch - Spicy Green Capsicum with Gram Flour Recipe

Hello foodies,

Today's recipe is a very simple recipe of the humble green capsicum. Usually green capsicum is paired with potatoes/aloo, but today's version involves upgrading this humble vegetable with a dash of besan/gram flour. Not only does this besan/gram flour make the vegetable more tasty, it adds so much nuttiness and aroma to the vegetable. This humble recipe can be put together with a very few ingredients and takes very little time to prepare. Generally for me this is a recipe which I pack for my lunch when I am in a rush-rush situation.

I picked up this recipe from my newly married friend, she used roasted besan for the vegetable, whereas I have used un-roasted besan/gram flour. It takes a tad bit longer to cook than the roasted version probably. But the end result turns out to be same nonetheless. So, let's get cooking...

Bottle Gourd Gravy - Lauki Sabzi - Ghiya ki Sabzi in Cooker Recipe

Hello foodies,

How are you guys doing? With the weather taking a warmer turn with each passing day nature is also turning itself to make available all the water laden fruits and vegetables for us. Even though I am a die hard fan of fresh green peas in winters, they taste bland and revolting during summers. So, we opt for more fresh produce of summers, which is ghiya (bottle gourd), turai, tinds etc. But most of the young ones and adults feel revolted by these vegetables. So, let's make ghiys gravy today, which is simple to prepare but yet full of flavor. I am sure that no one will be able to say no to ghiya once you prepare it like this! So, let's get cooking...
