I love to cook more varieties with capsicum, unfortunately I know very few recipes with capsicum. I like to prepare spicy curries, this is one of my favorites vegetarian curry.

Anyway I will introduce one tasty spicy variety with this. In my ideas its great for parties as vegetarian variety. Yeah... Looks good... Colourful...

I have used only red and green, you can use yellow one as well.


Capsicums - 3
Fresh Coconut - 1/4 cup
Onion - 2
Tomato - 2
Ginger & Garlic Past - 1 tsp
Green Chilies - 7
Puppy Seeds - 2 tsp
Sesame Seeds - 2 tsp
Coriander Leaves - 1 bunch
Oil - 2 tbls

  • Chop the capsicum, onion, tomato,coriander leaves into small peaces. Crush coconut and slices the chillies.

  • In a kadai or saute pan, heat oil and add chopped onion. Saute until onion become soft. then add ginger&garlic past later on add chopped tomato and chilly fry another 2 min. Now mix the capsicum in that and cover the lid and cook for 5 min.

  • Meanwhile prepare the sesame & puppy seeds powder. In thick sauce pan once fry the sesame seeds and transfer to a blender, in the same pan fry the puppy seeds for 30sec and grind along with sesame seeds.

  • Mix this sesame & puppy seeds powder into the curry and Cook until the capsicum become tender and add salt.

  • At this stage we can add fresh coconut. (some of them don't like fresh coconut in this if so, u can grind dry coconut along with sesame seeds powder. i like this one) and cook two more minutes

  • Take off from the heat and add chopped coriander.

Serve this capsicum coconut with chapati or steamed hot rice
