Aloo Capsicum (Potato Capsicum) Fry

After a tiring day, what one would look for is a quick and easy dish that is both healthy and filling. Aloo Capsicum or potato capsicum fry is one such dish. I particularly like capsicum for its light spicy flavor that it lends to the entire dish. This is a very easy dish. Try it!

1 big capsicum cut in to medium pieces
1 big potato cut in to cubes
1 tsp cumin seeds
1/2 tsp coriander powder
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1/2 tsp chilli powder
1/2 garam masala
Salt to taste

Heat oil in the pan. Once heated, put the cumin seeds and let them pop.
Put all the spices except for garam masala and let it mix with oil. Let the oil get the flavor of these spices. It should not take more than 3-4 seconds.
Then add the potato and capsicum and mix properly so that the spiced up oil coats the pieces properly. Add salt according to taste and mix well.
Sprinkle some water in it and on a low to medium heat, cook with a closed lid. Keep stir regularly so that the vegetables do not stick to the pan and burn. Add water whenever required.
Cook till the vegetables soften.
Then sprinkle the garam masala and mix well. Turn off the fire after couple of minutes.
Serve hot with roti or rice.
