Chapathis may become boring when you make only channa masala or vegetable gravy or khorma often. Paneer gravy would be a great choice which would never be boring for me. 😀 But, Paneer won’t be there to back me up at times, when I make some sudden plan for an exotic creamy gravy. Recently, when I ran out of paneer, I prepared this yummy capsicum gravy which was equally delicious. I just grabbed all those colorful bell peppers from the market this time to double up the use of gravy for both rice & chapathi. 😀

Do you know that the difference in the colors of bell peppers indicates the different stages of ripening? An unripened green pepper usually matures into yellow or orange color and then grows on to a fully ripened red pepper. Bell peppers are rich in anti-oxidants Vitamin A & C. The crunchiness and the difference in taste of bell peppers from spicy (green) to sweet (red) in the creamy gravy is a great addition to your meal. Ready to give some nutritional boost to your food with these rainbow gravy?
