Quick capsicum stir-fry

Cooking time Required: 5-8 mins
Cost of Preparation: 15-20 rupees

Ingredients: Capsicum ( 1 no, large), garlic flakes ( 2-3 nos ), mustard-poppy-garlic paste ( cooked, 1 tsp), green chillis ( 1-2 nos ), oil( 1 1/2 tsp ), salt , turmeric ( a pinch ).

Preparation: Cut the capsicum into even sized pieces. Remove the seeds.

Cooking: Heat the oil in a pan. Add the chopped green chillis and garlic flakes. Stir fry for 30 secs.

Follow with the cooked mustard-poppy-garlic paste. Add the capsicum pieces along with a pinch of turmeric and salt to taste.

Stir fry for 5-6 mins or cover with a lid to get it done faster. Stir fry is ready to eat.

Note: I had made Gota Bhendi Bhaja ( Stuffed Okra ) the previous day and was having the cooked mustard-poppy-garlic paste sitting in the fridge . While rummaging through the fridge contents the next morning, i decided to use it with capsicum ( the lone veggie in my stock along wth a half slice of tomato and a limp bunch of greens ) for a quick stir fry.

Packed it with white rice and had a lovely lunch.
