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.
  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
  • 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.


  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.
