These days weather is variable and unpredictable in Bangalore. Though there is no sign of rain however morning breeze is cold and later in the afternoon it's really hot and again in the evening it's windy. Our little one was having little cough in the night but it was manageable with steaming and home remedies. But suddenly yesterday night, the cough got aggravated and needs medication! When the little one at your home is not well, it really makes you worried! Hope this thing settles down soon.
Aloo shimla mirch is my today's post. It is a popular side dish with roti or paratha. I love to add shimla mirch/capsicum in various preparations however could not do so often because my counter part shares a love & hate relationship with it. He loves to eat it in pizzas, noodles, chilli chicken but not in normal gravy like aloo capsicum gravy or capsicum stir fry.This time I prepared this dry potato capsicum masala and he liked the taste of it and asking for more. Sharing this easy and tasty recipe with you all.
