Variations That You Can Try For Potato Capsicum Recipe


  • When the potatoes get tender, add chopped tomatoes and mix well.
  • Add gram-flour/besan in the last 5 mins of the cooking procedure. Adding gram-flour/besan lends a very crispy flavour to the potato- capsicum sabji

Recipe Notes


  • You can cut the capsicum square or lengthwise. But remember that both should be cut the same way. That is if the potato is cut into a square then even capsicum should be square. If the potato is cut in vertical then even capsicum should be vertical.
  • Use a non-stick pan and consume less oil thus making your food rich in fibre and virtually fat-free.
  • If you use a normal wok then you can add 2 tsp of oil rather than 1 tsp.
  • If you accidentally pour extra oil then add gram-flour/besan in the last 5 mins of the cooking procedure. Adding gram-flour/besan lends a very crispy flavour to the potato- capsicum sabji and will also soak up the excess oil thus balancing your meal
