Vegan Potato-Bell pepper Curry (Aloo Shimlamirch Subji)

This is a very basic yet tasty subji ,this goes very well with phulkas or plain paratha .This recipe goes very well in a tiffin box too as this is not spicy but if you want spicy you can add more red chili on it . This is one of my favorites subji as it is very colorful ,I love eating colorful foods- The more colorful or vibrant your food is ,the more rich nutrients they are .
