Capsicum Curry is ready to serve.( can make this curry with Little gravy or dry).(i normally make this curry with Little gravy --i.e i remove the curry when it has little water in it, if u like the other version i.e dry then keep stirring it till the water fully evaporates)

This is a nice side dish for Chapati, Naan, Paratha, (White )Steamed Rice

I served this Capsicum Curry as main dish with White Rice (Steamed Rice) for Lunch.
