Potato Capsicum Upkari

                           Today am here with one more combination of Upkari which is my favourite ..my Amma used to make it for us and now I do it for my daughter as this combo is her favourite too.There is nothing much of a recipe here .So I have not gone into detailing.Do try and enjoy this combo too along with other varieties of Upkari from our blog.
Ingredients:-
 
  1. 5-6 Potatoes
  2. 2 capsicums
  3. Tsp of mustard seeds
  4. A sprig of curry leaves
  5. Generous pinch of hing
  6. Pinch turmeric powder (optional)
  7. A tbsp or 2 of coconut
  8. Oil a tbsp or as required
  9. Salt to taste
  10. 1-2 red chillies
Method:-
  • Chop the potatoes into small cubes and immerse them in a bowl of water.
  • Chop Capsicums also in the similar way as that of potatoes.
  • Heat oil in a pan or kadhai..add mustard seeds,when they splutter add curry leaves,red chillies, hing and stir..add turmeric powder and stir again.
  • Now add the chopped potatoes and capsicum and mix well.
  • Add salt,coconut ..sprinkle some water and mix again.
  • Close with a lid and cook on low flame for 10-15 minutes or until done stirring in between to avoid burning.                                                      
The tasty Upkari is ready to be had with our lunch or dinner as a side dish.
 

Notes:-

  1. Be careful while adding water as some potatoes cook very quick..so adding too much water at the beginning may make them mushy.
  2. Adding turmeric is optional …I have just added a pinch.
  3. I sometimes chop the veggies into thin long slices.
