C-O-T Subzi

Wondering what that name is? Just capsicum (bell peppers), onion & tomato subzi. My mother makes this and I love having it with chhapathi or with curd (yoghurt) rice. Every once in a while, I make this for myself. It is very easy to make and cooks real quick too. So, all you office-goers can make this in a jiffy!!!

Green Capsicum (Bell Pepper) - 1 large
Onion - 1/2 large
Tomato - 2 large
Ginger - 1/4 inch or 1/2 tsp paste
Garlic - 2 cloves or 1/2 tsp paste
Green chilies - 1-2
Jeera (Cumin) powder - 1/2 tsp
Dhanya (Coriander) powder - 1/2 tsp
Oil - 1 tsp
Salt to taste

Chop capsicum, onion & tomato. Mince ginger & garlic, if using fresh. Slit green chilies lengthwise
Heat oil in a skillet and saute ginger, garlic and green chillies till garlic starts browning
Add onions and saute till they become transparent
Toss in capsicum, saute till it is half cooked
Add tomatoes, saute and cook till they become soft
Sprinkle jeera & dhanya powders and salt, saute another minute.
Remove from stove.

This dish is very easy to make. It is a mixture of flavors - a little sweet & a little spicy & a little crunchy too. Serve with chhapathi, plain rice or curd (yoghurt) rice.
