Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Peel the tomatoes if you can be bothered- I don’t as I think they add a little extra flavour!
  2. Cut the green pepper and tomatoes into large chunks- peppers about 1 inch squares and tomatoes into quarters.
  3. Or open tin if cheating!
  4. Heat the oil in a wide pan and add the cumin seeds.
  5. Stir about, then add the green pepper and sauté for 2-3 minutes.
  6. Add the tomatoes and cook, stirring, for 5 minutes, mashing them down as they soften.
  7. Add the salt, chilli powder, turmeric, garam masala and brown sugar.
  8. Stir well, then simmer, covered, for 7 minutes, or until the pepper are cooked to your liking.
  9. Best served at once.

I made this per the recipe and it is just okay for me. Other reviewers added onion and I would suggest that as well. But it defintely needs to be eaten with rice, nan, or even potatoes, which another review also suggested... It is not something that I can eat as is with a spoon all on its own. Thank you for sharing.

Delicious! I only had tandoori masala and substituted, otherwise using all the same spices. I also added onion and potato to make it a meal for 2- and it was excellent. We will make this again, thank you!

I enjoyed this recipe very much, made for PAC Fall 2007. Simple and easy to put together, quick and delicious for a mid-week supper. I did add a roughly chopped onion, sauteeing it with the green pepper. The vegetables were crisp and tasty, the sauce mild but satisfying. I served it with rice. Thanks for a great recipe, Tulip-Fairy!
