Capsicum is a veggie that’s bursting with flavour! Just a few cubes of capsicum added to any dish instantly perks up its aroma and flavour. Naturally, the Mexican Green Sauce made of capsicum is a great addition to any recipe.
However, any ingredient with a strong flavour has to be balanced well to make it appealing to the palate. Milk does that job by aptly toning down the flavour of capsicum, while plain flour helps to thicken the sauce and give it a creamy consistency.
