Preparation time - 5 min
Cooking time - 10 min

Ingredients -

Capsicum (diced into 1" cubes) - 1 1/2  cups
Onion  (diced into 1" cubes) -  1 cup
Tomatoes (pureed) - 1/2 cup [2 tomatoes pureed in a mixer]
Tomatoes (cut into 1" cubes) - 1/2 cup
Tomato ketchup - 1 tbsp
Oil - 1 tsp
Red Chilli powder - 1/4 tsp
Sugar - 1 tsp
Salt to taste

Procedure - 

  1. Heat oil in a non-stick pan.
  2. Saute onions till translucent pink.
  3. Add capsicum, pureed tomatoes, salt, red chilli powder and sugar. Cook till capsicum is tender but should not loose its crunch.
  4. Add tomato ketchup. Mix well. Taste and adjust the seasoning, if required.
  5. Turn off the flame then add tomato cubes.
  6. Leave the pan uncovered for 10 min, as covering it with a lid will further soften the capsicum to spoil its crunchiness.
