Capsicum Peas Podi Curry


I use capsicum for pasta and noodles.When there are more left ,i didnt know what curry to make to suit rice.My mum said capsicum and peas podi curry idea.Perfect with any rice or roti.

I have used frozen peas ,MW for 3min.If u r using dry peas cook them before adding to this dish,as capsicum cooks too soon.You can add all the ground powder or half of them according to your preference.

Thank you guys for your support even though i am not so active.Sorry guys ,being held up with some things.
