  1. Finally, doctors in my country (the United States) are admitting what many in the world knew all along – food is medicine. Spices are medicine. And both can be so enjoyable.

  2. Ah capsicum? I’m allergic to it. I’ll try the same recipes with some fried brinjals though.

  3. Lovely recipe…tempted to try it out over the weekend! And, yes, I do agree capsicum has a tremendous nutritive value…I cook it almost twice every week🙂

  4. Capsicum is one of my most favorite veggies and I eat it every day, usually in a salad, but I also make capsicum rice, specially with the yellow, red and green combo. Just love it!

  7. I tried commenting thrice yesterday, but couldn’t get through! Love capsicum and use it every day in salads or as a cooked subzi. Especially love the colorful ones – we get yellow, red, orange and green. And the rice, just love it!
