Peanut Capsicum Masala ( No Onion/ No Garlic)

I like trying new dishes every now and then and if it's easily with very less ingredients, I don't give it a miss. I saw this recipe in a regional cookery show and found it interesting. Its a Jain Recipe as it doesn't include onion or garlic in it. I love capsicums too and that's always available in my fridge. The main ingredients here is capsicum( bell peppers) and peanuts. We had this for breakfast the other day with hot chapati's and everyone loved it. It was as usual a busy morning as my kid had to rush to school and hubby to office. Since my mom was with me that day, she took hold of the kitchen work and insisted me to take a picture. I love her support. Thank u Ma :)
