Capsicum with Gram Flour

When you are tired of making capsicum with onions and tomato or with a coconut-dhania powder masala, try this one.  Simple, easy and a nice change.  


Capsicum - 3 large
Gram Flour (Besan) - 1/4 cup
Oil - 2 -3 tbsp
Chilie powder - to taste ( maybe 1 1/2 tsp)
Coriander powder - 1/4 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Salt to taste
Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp

Roast the besan in a pan till till you get a nice flavour, so that it loses its raw flavour
Cut the capsicum to small pieces.

In a wok, put the oil. Heat 
Add the mustard
Allow it to splutter
Add the capsicum, Stir and allow it to cook
Add the roasted besan.  Saut√©
Add the turmeric, chilie and coriander powder and salt.
If you wish you can sprinkle some water here
Keep on low fire and stir often. 
The besan will turn a golden colour and be crumbly in texture
Remove from heat and serve.
