Bharwa Shimla Mirch (Capsicums) !
Tried it for the first time and it turned out delicious. I had stocks of capscicums as I managed to get only those in the supermarket last week during the covid-19 lockdown😅
But on positive side, tried this yummy dish out 😁 It pairs well with rice as well as with Chapathi. For this recipe, preferably use small capsicums. I had of all colors and used all of them.
