Capsicum chicken is a perfect side dish for chappathi or naan recipe. The making is also pretty easy and it’s spicy too. If you are a spicy freak you would definitely like to have it. My Amma makes it so good as the recipe has a little sour,sweet and a spicy taste too.This comes like a semi gravy dish added with lot of capsicum and spring onion which adds a good taste to the recipe.So give it a try and really you will love it :)!!!
