Capsicum Curry - With Garlic, but no Onion

This is a tasty capsicum curry.  Without onion, but with the flavour of garlic.  A bit of spice, a bit of coconut and some tomato.  Pretty simple to make.  I just loved it.  And let me tell you , I did not make it, but am taking the credit for it since it was in my kitchen :-)


Capsicum - 4 medium size

Coriander seeds - (dhania ) - 1 ½  tbsp
Cumin seeds (jeera ) - ½  tbsp 
Dry red chilies - 2 big

Fresh / Frozen grated coconut - 1/4 cup
Garlic cloves - 6-8 nos ( these were small in size)
Oil - 2 tbsp
Tomatoes - 2 nos 

Dry roast the cumin, coriander seeds and the dry red chilies till you get that lovely roasted aroma
Grind coarsely with fresh/frozen coconut and garlic

In a wok, heat 2 tbsp of oil
Add cubed capsicum pieces.  Sauté
When the pieces are slightly tender add the ground masala.
Toss till the veggies are coated and the masala also gets another bout of heating.
Add about half cup water, and in the first boil add two medium sized chopped tomatoes.
Salt to taste.  
Keep simmering till you get a slightly dry consistency.
Just make sure the capsicum has a little bite left for a perfect curry
