Simple Bell Pepper Stir Fry

This is a quick dish made with simple ingredients. This curry tastes great with rice or chapathi.


  • 2 cups chopped Green Bell Pepper
  • ½ cup chopped Onion
  • 2 tsp Chickpea Flour (Senagapindi, Besan)
  • ½ tsp red Chili Powder
  • A pinch of Turmeric
  • Salt
For Seasoning/Tempering:

  • ½ tsp Mustard Seeds
  • ¼ tsp Cumin Seeds
  • ½ tsp Bengal Gram (Pachi Senagapappu, Chana Dal)
  • ½ tsp Black Gram (Minappappu, Urad Dal)
  • 1 dry red Chili
  • Few Curry Leaves
  • 2 tsp Oil

Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds. When they splutter, add cumin seeds + Bengal gram + black gram and fry till the daals turn golden brown in color. Then add red chili + curry leaves and fry well.

Later add onions + bell pepper and sauté well. Sprinkle turmeric on top and mix well. Cover and leave the curry on medium flame for some time until the veggies become soft and cooked.

Mix besan with red chili powder and sprinkle this on top of the curry. Add salt also and mix well. Leave it for some time until besan loses its raw smell and blends well with the curry.

Transfer to a serving bowl and enjoy with rice or chapathis.

It is a simple and yummy dish..I make it almost the same way except that I only use jeera tempering and I stir fry the besan before adding.

This dish with the chickpea flour reminds me a lot of one my mom-in-law would make. I tried cooking it from memory, but was never quite successful. Thanks for sharing this, Uma-- you made me so hungry!
