Capsicum Dry Bhaji

Capsicum Dry Bhaji


Capsicum (Bhopli Mirchi) – 4-5 medium size
Any oil – 1 tablespoon
Salt – As per taste (I added around 1 teaspoon)
Asafoetida (Hing) – 1 small pinch
Cumin seeds (Jeera) – 1 teaspoon
Garlic pods (Lasoon) – 5-6 pieces
Turmeric powder (Haldi) – 1 small pinch
Chili powder (Lal mirchi)- 1 teaspoon
Coriander powder (Dhane) – 1 teaspoon
Gram flour (Besan) – 2 tablespoons


  1. Wash the capsicums clean. Cut them into small bite size pieces.
  2. On a dry pan, fry the besan till it looks slightly brown. Keep it aside.
  3. In a non-stick kadhai, add the oil. When it heats up, put the asafoetida, cumin seeds & garlic pods in it. Mix well taking care that it does not burn.
  4. Add Turmeric, Chili, Coriander powder, Salt into the kadhai & fry well.
  5. Add the capsicum pieces and mix everything well. Keep the kadhai covered for a minute or so.
  6. Once the capsicum cooks, add the fried besan and mix well. Cover and let cook the besan till the raw smell is gone.

Serve with Indian Bread (Roti/Naan).
