November 21, 2019 Bell Pepper/CapsicumKootu / Poriyal Varieties  No comments

Capsicum Paruppu Usili, Yes u read it right! I never knew capsicum can be made in paruppu usili style until I tasted it a friend’s place. Really loved it. Thanks “J” for the idea πŸ™‚ Usually paruppu usili is made with beans, vazhaipoo, cluster beans… Capsicum adds a zing to it. Unlike beans or vazhaipoo, capsicum gets cooked very quickly. Goes well with sambar, rasam or mor kuzhambu. Check out the video..

Red Capsicum Soup – Roasted Capsicum Soup

September 19, 2017 Bell Pepper/CapsicumSoups  One comment

Soups are recently in demand at home, since the weather has started changing. Its getting really cold. I feel, a hot bowl of a filling soup in the evenings is a better alternative to tea/coffee. Later a light supper/dinner would do, to finish the day. This Red Capsicum Soup had been in my to do list since a long time. I usually prefer the green and yellow peppers as I feel the red ones have a slight fruity flavour. But the red ones served best in making this soup. It was so flavourful. The colour is very attractive to tempt kids as well. Check my other soups HERE
