Aloo Capsicum is one the popular north Indian dishes. Unfortunately till date there is only one person's aloo capsicum I really loved and that is my friend Bhagya's. Back in good old HCL days we used to work together and she would bring this yummy dish and even though I am not a capsicum fan I would hog it down :)....
I tried to make this dish but could not achieve what she used to. I hope she reads this one and lets me know how she used to do it :)
