RED BELL PEPPER PARATHA

Bell peppers I like them in my curries, especially with paneer. We all know that bell peppers are very rich in vitamin c. (in 100 gms bell pepper contains nearly 80mg c vitamin) with disease fighting antioxidants especially in red bell peppers.

My sister likes jiffy recipes, mild tasted foods not very spicy food like me.yesterday when I was talking to her she told me about this recipe. Instead of making bell pepper curry and roti. That time I was searching for bell pepper recipes for Priya's AFAM event, so immediately I tried this paratha for AFAM event. And this parathas are just simply superb with nice red bell pepper aroma(when I was frying this parathas my house is covered with very tempting and nice aroma, that made me very hungry). Here is the recipe for RED BELL PEPPER PARATHA for PRIYA'S AFAM – BELL PEPPER EVENT

So creative, Red bell pepper has a wonderful flavor and its great to incorporate it in Paratha. Do check my blog for a lovely fritter recipe using red jalapeno peppers which has similar taste to red bell capsicum.
