Tri colour Capsicum Kurma.


Three colour capsicum , collecting this or rather remembering to buy during the weekly shopping is a big task although  i have a beautiful recipe with me from Sharmis passion . No tomato is the highlight of this Kurma. i remember blogging that i had made this during Guests visit . Time flies quickly. Only now i had time to make this for Blog purpose and a second time  for my family too . My Husband’s usual comment that you cook  tasty food only when guests come is proved . Still i have to make Mysore Masala Dosai and Tiffin Sambhar to complete that menu i had cooked when friends arrived . It is rare to have guest nowadays. All of us are busy and i remember inviting friends every weekend  many years ago and we too had the opportunity to visit friend’s houses. Sometimes weekends we would not have not even cooked anything at home. Those were days when each one of us entertained and that was the only priority in life .

This Kurma or gravy is easy to make and also equally tasty .We can use the same base but vary the taste by adding vegetables like Palak or potatoes too. It depends on our creativity.If spices are used mildly we can get that white colour in our Gravy .
