  • Hello,
    Thanks for the recipe. I have a question, can we add some water ( very little )when adding the capsicum , as the potatoes and capsicum together seem very dry, so I don’t know how will the capsicum cook .

    • Hi,

      Thank you for visiting my blog.

      Capsicum gets cook very easily even if you don’t add water to it. Adding salt while cooking capsicum helps it to get cooked faster. But still if you want you can add little water to it.
