When nothing seems fit to be cooked as side dish, then look for some potatoes. Which is what I do. Because this root veggie can fit in all forms of food so very deliciously that no one can say ‘No’. The potato food addiction actually starts from us as infants. Isn’t so? When the baby teething begins signifying the time to introduce solid food, moms start with easy ones like mashed potato, potato with rice gruel and so on. My little son even today, likes boiled potato so much that everyday I keep a potato for snacking after school. As such, the liking for potato is almost in all ways of our life similar to the way I love this potato capsicum dry curry.
Potato and capsicum always get well with each other. Capsicum flavors excellently match with that of potato and together they make a lip-smacking side dish. Which you can pair with chapati, poori and even with rice-rasam. I haven’t included onion-garlic to whip up this awesomeness. But I leave that option to you readers. You make a choice, if your habit doesn’t let you stay away from onion plus garlic, you can always have it in the first place soon after the tempering. I cooked this potato capsicum dry curry in purely tomato chunks that added nice tang taste to the curry.
So when you have a single capsicum lying in your pantry, either you can make capsicum chutney or put in to a side dish with potatoes. Both ways they are in best food of the time.
