  • Start by washing the bell pepper in clean water and chopping them into cubes or long strands.
  • Next, peel the skin of the potatoes and chop them into cubes using a chopper.
  • Place a pan over medium heat and saute the cumin seeds, onions, and capsicum with oil.
    2 green capsicum or bell pepper, 1 red onion, 2 teaspoon coconut oil, 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • After about a minute, add chopped potatoes, chopped tomatoes and stir well.

  • Add coconut milk and a cup of water. Again stir gently.

  • Simmer for 2-3 mins, then switch off the heat and garnish with cilantro or coriander leaves.
    2 teaspoon cilantro for garnish
  • Potato Capsicum Curry is ready! Enjoy!



  • Use cream of the coconut milk to make it extra creamy and rich. 
  • Use green capsicum or bell pepper.
  • Use freshly grounded spices.
  • You can finely chop the bell pepper or cut them lengthwise.
  • Use red or brown potatoes, and peel the skin before adding it to the curry.
  • I have used green bell peppers for this curry, but feel free to add the colored ones to make them more eye-catchy for the kids.
  • Be sure to adjust your spice levels based on the kind of bell pepper.
  • The red and yellow peppers tend to be a little sweeter than the green kind and sometimes that can become a factor in the taste.
