Potato & Bell Pepper Stir-fry

Another quick and easy sabzi to go with your rotis. This one has both my favourite veggies. Perfect comfort food!


  • Potatoes – 4 nos (large sized; steam cooked wholly, peeled and diced into bite-sized pieces)
  • Capsicum/Bell Pepper – 2 nos (medium sized; diced)
  • Jeera/Cumin seeds – 1 tsp
  • Turmeric powder – 1/4 tsp
  • Red Chilly powder – 1/2 tsp (adjust to suit your taste)
  • Garam Masala powder – 1/2 tsp
  • Jeera powder – 1/2 tsp
  • Dhaniya powder – 1/4 tsp
  • Amchur powder – 1/2 tsp
  • Salt – to taste
  • Oil – 2 tsps


  • Heat the oil in a wok. Add jeera seeds and allow to splutter.
  • Add the capsicum and turmeric powder. Saute on a medium flame till the capsicum is cooked.
  • Add the diced potatoes and salt. Stir fry on high for 2 minutes.
  • Stir in all the spice powders and stir fry on high for 5 minutes till the sabzi is well coated with all the spices.
  • Serve hot with straight-from-the-pan rotis and some fresh tomato-onion-cucumber salad!

  1. Lovely picture.. and you are right abt this being a comfort food 🙂

  2. This one is a classic comfort food… apart from the fact that I can eat potatoes in just any shape, size or form 😉

  3. I love how you have SO much light available back in India to click pics. Out here half the year, we have to make our flash setting over work to get good photos in the dull winter weather. 😦

    • Me too…potatoes, chocolates and ice-creams any time of the day, any day of the week, be it any season!
      And regarding your second comment…Ahem, no that isn’t natural light. I’ve cheated and used some light props and also done some tweaking on Photoshop! 😛

  4. A friend of mine always made this dish for potlucks and it was a great hit each and every single time. Yours looks very appetizing 🙂

  5. You read my mind !! I was thinking about making this sabzi in the evening & i found this recipe. Thank you : )
