Happy new year to one and all! Hope you had a nice time and enjoyed long holidays. We were off to native for two weeks. All the vacation went on just like that with our family and relatives there. Grand parents were eager to see their little grand daughter. Little one enjoyed playing and roaming around with them. She was very happy to see cow and little calf, cat and dogs and trying to imitate their sounds. One more happiest thing is that, just few days before our trip, she started walking. Her steps are more firm now by the time we are back from trip to native.
Coming back to the recipe..capsicum is one of the vegetables which will be available during all the seasons and all the regions. I love to use it in sambar and side dishes to enhance the taste and aroma of the recipe. Stuffed capsicum is our all time favorite and it will be my choice of side dish many a times. Sometimes, I will prepare Capsicum Palya (Stir fry) in my mom's style. She will use home made masala powder for this Palya which will give a unique taste to this recipe!

Preparation time: 40 minutes
Servings: 4 - 5
