Capsicum Potato Gravy

A savory and comforting gravy featuring the dynamic duo of capsicum and potato.


  • 2 large potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 2 medium-sized capsicums (bell peppers), diced
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 tomatoes, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1-inch piece of ginger, grated
  • 2 tablespoons cooking oil
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 1 teaspoon coriander powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon red chili powder (adjust to taste)
  • Salt to taste
  • Fresh cilantro leaves for garnish


  1. Heat the cooking oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add the cumin seeds and let them sizzle for a few seconds until fragrant.
  2. Add the chopped onion and sauté until it turns translucent, about 3-4 minutes.
  3. Stir in the minced garlic and grated ginger, and cook for another 1-2 minutes until they release their aroma.
  4. Add the diced potatoes and capsicums to the pan. Stir well to coat them with the onion mixture.
  5. Cook for about 5-6 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the potatoes and capsicums start to soften.
  6. Sprinkle the turmeric powder, coriander powder, cumin powder, red chili powder, and salt over the vegetables. Mix everything together until the spices are evenly distributed.
  7. Add the chopped tomatoes to the pan and stir to combine. Cook for another 5-6 minutes until the tomatoes break down and form a thick gravy.
  8. If the mixture becomes too dry, you can add a splash of water to adjust the consistency of the gravy.
  9. Once the potatoes are cooked through and the capsicums are tender, taste the gravy and adjust the seasoning if needed.
  10. Garnish with fresh cilantro leaves before serving.
  11. Serve the delicious capsicum potato gravy hot with rice or chapati for a satisfying meal!

This simple and flavorful capsicum potato gravy is perfect for a quick and hearty dinner. Enjoy the vibrant colors and rich flavors of this homemade dish!
