An interesting subzi of besan and capsicum cubes, tempered with cumin seeds and sautéed with a range of spice powders, which add more josh to the naturally flavourful capsicum.

Capsicum has a pleasantly spicy flavour, which is accentuated by the addition of sugar and lemon juice. The roasted besan gives the Shimla Mirch Besan ki Sukhi Subzi a wonderful mouth-feel, rich taste and strong, appetizing aroma.

You will really enjoy having this dry subzi with rice and dal or your favourite Indian bread .
