Potato Capsicum Poriyal / Potato Capsicum Stir Fry / Aloo Pepper Roast

I made this curry last week and served it along with malli rasam. It was totally a yummy meal. The combination of potato and capsicum goes well together. There is no much spice powders. The flavour comes from crushed garlic and some cumin seeds. I used garlic cloves with skin on, so it doesn't get burn and i love the taste of this. So try it and let me know how it turns out.

Preparation Time : 15 mins
Cooking Time : 30 mins
Serves : 3 to 4


Oil - 3 tblspn
Cumin Seeds / Jeerakam - 1 tsp
Garlic - 6 cloves crushed
Onion - 1 large sliced
Potatoes - 2 large peeled and cubed
Turmeric Powder / Manjal podi - 1 tsp
Salt to taste
Capsicum / Bell Pepper - 1 cubed ( I used a mixture of yellow and red)
Chill powder - 2 tsp


Heat oil in a kadai. Add in cumin and crushed garlic, fry them for few mins.

Add in onions and potatoes and toss well in the oil.

Add in salt and turmeric powder and mix well. Cover and cook for 15 mins on a low flame till the potatoes are tender.

Now add in capsicum and mix well on high heat for 5 mins.

Now Cook till the potatoes turn crispy and golden.

Add in chilli powder and toss well. Cook for couple of mins.

Serve with rice and rasam.
