A Delightful Peanut Capsicum Masala

This is a maharastrian dish that I love a lot, it is extremely rich with flavor and is a perfect accompaniment for roti and rice. I would say it is a perfect side dish that will delight your family.


  • 3 cups diced(small) capsicum 
  • 1/2 cup sliced onions
  • 1/2 cup diced tomatoes
  • 2 green chillies
  • 1 tbsp coriander powder
  • 1 tsp chilli powder (kashmiri)
  • 1/3 cup peanuts
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1/2 tsp cummin/jeera
  • 1/8 tsp turmeric powder
  • pinch of hing
  • salt to taste


Fry the peanuts and grind to a coarse powder without skin, keep aside

Heat oil in a pan add cummin seeds once it starts to splutter add onion, turmeric powder and slit green chilli and fry till oil becomes translucent, then add capsicum and hing , fry and cover it till it soften

Add the tomatoes and stir till it becomes soft, now add all the remaining ingredients ( coriander powder, chilli powder and salt) and stir again for a min till it blends nicely

Then add peanut powder mix nicely, cover and cook on a low flame for 5 min. Serve hot with roti or rice
