Capsicum with gram flour (Mirchichi Pith Perun Bhaji)

This is another very common Maharashtrian dish. We call it 'Mirchichi Pith Perun Bhaji'. Well, its made just like any other dry veggie dish but with besan(gram flour) being added at the end.

3. Add the chopped capsicum and tomato. Then add rest of the spices and stir.
4. Cover and cook until the capsicum is little soft.
5. Add sugar/jaggery and salt. Cover and let it cook for some more time.
6. Then add besan/gram flour. Add more spices/salt if required and mix
Add some more oil, so that the flour doesn't stick and doesn't become lumpy.

  3. Hi Meghana. I am new to your blog. Your veg recipes are interesting. My mom prepares the capsicum Bhaji as you do but with a little modification... She adds dry roasted moong dal powder ( grind it coarsely).
