Bell Pepper Potato Shimla Mirch Aloo Sabzi Indian Video Recipe

Bell Pepper Potato Shimla Mirch Aloo Sabzi Indian Video Recipe

Bell peppers are referred to as “shimla mirch” in Hindi (not ghanti mirch as you might think). Traditionally, this sabzi is made with green bell peppers. You can use any variation you like. Red bell peppers are really good for you as I discuss in the video, so I highly recommend them. I used to make this dish in college all the time. I distinctly remember two things from the day I made it for my visiting parents and cousin. 1-I jumped up and bumped my head on a cabinet since I was so excited that the sabzi I made was actually edible. 2-My cousin Bobby politely told me that bangs were not my thing by saying, “they make your face look like an apple.”
