This capsicum in coconut gravy recipe is inspired by Kerala stew recipe. One fine morning I was all ready to make Idiyappam but suddenly I realize that I didn't have any vegetables like potato, carrot or even I didn't have green peas. I didn't have time to soak any dry peas or channa. I find only colored capsicum that I brought to make some fried rice for my Indo- chinese combo. Now I have to use some for this stew any how capsicum is my all time favorite vegetable. I can enjoy this wonderful vegetable in any form. Now this stew turned out so well. Every one at home this curry not even for breakfast for the whole day even with plain rice hubby enjoyed this stew. You know this stew became a favorite at home now I am using only capsicum for stew.. :)
