Shimla mirch aur alloo sabzi [Potato bell pepper fry]

Back home I used to love bell peppers [aka capsicum, shimla mirch] and for some reason don't enjoy eating it here in the US. Being a vegetarian, its not a good idea to be choosy with limited vegetables available here :)) So I decided to cook a regular bell pepper and potato curry with a twist.....and my secret ingredient is MDH Paav Bhaji Masala [you can get in any Indian store ]. Trust me, Paav bhaji masala adds an extra zing to the sabzi and now its one of my favorites !! I hope you all gonna enjoy this one....

Heat oil, add mustard seeds a…
