Posted in : BREAKFAST RECIPES, PALYA / SOOKHA SUBJI / USLI / SALAD on by : Divya Suresh Tags:

One of my most favourite subji…aloo shimla mirch, which is a very easy and simple recipe. Potatoes are extremely popular in Northern India and have multipurpose usage. Actually Potato  is also a source of Vitamin C and provides useful amount of starch, niacin and thiamine. As usual everyone does it in many ways, but I make it very simply by using only turmeric powder and red chilli powder for spice and cumin powder as herb. Usually in this subji potatoes are used in more quantity than capsicum, but I use equal quantity of both. Now let me start with the recipe.

 

Today I served it with     coriander paratha/chapati & Mango seekarane/aam ras
