Preparation time - 5 min
Cooking time - 10 min
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
- Heat oil in a non-stick pan.
- Saute onions till translucent pink.
- Add capsicum, pureed tomatoes, salt, red chilli powder and sugar. Cook till capsicum is tender but should not loose its crunch.
- Add tomato ketchup. Mix well. Taste and adjust the seasoning, if required.
- Turn off the flame then add tomato cubes.
- Leave the pan uncovered for 10 min, as covering it with a lid will further soften the capsicum to spoil its crunchiness.
- Capsicum stir-fry is ready to serve!
- If you like spicy food, you can add 1 tsp chilli sauce in addition to tomato ketchup.
- Paneer cubes, if added, gives an exotic appeal to this recipe.
