I still remember how I crinkled my nose when I opened my tiffin to Shimla Mirch Ki subji. It was the day to completely rely on either achaars or colleague’s tiffin! When it comes to me doing the packing the subji for my husbands tiffin, I wonder what must me his reactions..but then he’s an ardent lover of home cooked meals, and loves anything that’s simply homemade! Lucky me! But then, I know, its hard to love certain vegetables! Most of us love capsicums in our noodles or maybe over our pizzas, but with rotis….doubtful! For me, my subji becomes appealing with potaotes and some peanuts!  



  1. Wash and dry the capsicums, discard the seeds and chop them into small pieces.
  2. Heat oil in a kadhai and add cumin seeds, once they crack, add the onions and fry till translucent. Add the capsicums and fry for 1 min. Add potatoes and mix.
  3. Add salt, sugar, turmeric, red chilli powder, garam masala,coriander powder and mix. Add a tsp water and cook covered for 2 mins.
  4. Check vegetables by pressing the spoon. Once they are soft , add ground peanuts and mix. Transfer in serving dish and serve garnished with chopped coriander leaves.
