Easy Dinner Recipes
My friend, Chhaya Shah, taught me this delicious, yet easy method of cooking bell peppers. Chhaya is one of those cooks who just put things together with no measuring of ingredients and comes up with real tasty food. She kindly obliged me, by working out measurements so that her excellent recipes can be shared by others as well. You may want to check Chhaya's recipe for Poha Cutlets
This dish can be made with any variety of bell peppers. I like a mix of colors, just because I think it looks more interesting. I also like this dish as I am able to enjoy the health benefits of eating peppers while savoring the flavors.

Bell Peppers come in a variety of species & colors with varying intensity of spiciness. They are low in calories & high in Vitamins A, C, & a very important mineral, Potassium. The darker tones contain the highest concentration of antioxidant carotenoids. One small red, yellow or orange pepper provides three times the recommended daily allowance of vitamin C. This is much more than that derived from oranges. Red peppers contain lycopene, a carotenoid which lowers the risk of various cancers, including prostate and cervical cancer.
Red peppers are high in beta-carotene which is converted to vitamin A in the body and essential for night vision.
