Bhindi and Capsicum Tawa Masala

So it was another Sunday last week and yet another day to try something elaborate (not much thought this time). 

Digged into my Refrigerator and found some left over bhindi and capsicum so thought of making a tawa masala with them. 

Time for the ingredients:

(these ingredients would suffice for a dish for 2 people)

One big and one small onion
One tomato
Ginger 1.5 inch 
9-10 big cloves of garlic 
One big chilli    
Red chilli powder
Amchoor powder
Garam Masala 
Chaat masala 
Chicken masala (optional)
Cumin seeds 
Small Bay Leaf

  • Finely grind ginder and garlic with mortar and pestle 
  • Julian half of big onion and separate each layer of rest of the onion
  • Finely chop small onion and tomatoes 
  • Cut bhindi, capsicum and green chilli into medium pieces
  • Heat the oil in a pan 
  • Once hot, add cumin seeds and bay leaf
  • Add ginger garlic paste and a spoon of water to the pan
  • Add finely chopped and Julian onions
  • Once almost translucent, add tomatoes and seperated layers of onions to it 
  • Take salt, red chilli powder, chaat masala, chicken masala, amchoor, turmeric powder, garam masala in a bowl and mix it well with some water and add it into the pan(take extra chaat masala, chicken masala red chilli and garam masala if you like chatpata and spicy)
  • Close the lid and let it cook on low flame
  • In the mean time, heat very little oil in a non stick pan and cook bhindi and capsicum  in it
  • Once the masala is done, add fried bhindi and capsicum to it
Your Tawa Masala is ready to serve

Happy Eating :)
