Tips for dahi simla mirch ki sabzi

  2. The curd used in this recipe should be fresh to avoid tanginess in the sabzi.

How to choose capsicum / bell pepper

  1. Choose peppers that have deep vivid colour, taut skin, and that are free of soft spots, blemishes and darkened areas. 
  2. Their stems should be green and fresh looking. 
  3. Capsicum should be heavy for their size and firm enough so that they will gently yield to slight pressure. 
  4. Avoid those that have signs of decay including injuries to the skin or water-soaked areas.

How to make capsicum cubes

  1. For cutting the green capsicum into cubes, first cut the capsicum lengthwise into 4 wedges.
  2. Remove the stem, ribs and seeds and then with the help of a utility knife, remove any remaining rib. 
  3. To create squares, slice each of the four sections in half vertically. 
  4. Cut horizontally across each section to cut big or small cubes of desired size.

How to set curd

  1. To make Curd at home using Buffalo milk, rinse a deep non-stick pan with 2 tbsp of water and simmer it for 2-3 minutes. This is generally done in stainless steel pans but, if you have an old non-stick pan it is advisable to make this extra effort so, that the milk does not burn. If using a stainless steel patila, you can set the curd in the same vessel.
  2. Rotate the pan in a clockwise motion, so the water spreads evenly in the pan. This will prevent milk from scorching as the water forms a protective layer between the pan and milk.
  3. Discard the water and pour the full fat milk into the pan. We have used buffalo milk here as it is a full fat milk. The higher content of fat in this milk results in a very creamy, rich and thick curd as opposed to other types of milk. Click here to learn how to make curd in detail.

A good way to use coloured capsicum in a subzi. They have been nicely cooked with a completely unusual gravy that is using besan. The jeera adds a very nice flavour to this as well.
