Bell Pepper with Peanuts is a simple side dish, yet has the amazing flavors that go well with Chapatis, Rotis or with Rice. A nutritious accompaniment with great color and texture is quick to make. The softness if the Bell Peppers and the almost boiled effect of the Peanuts is a great combination with the sourness of the lime at the end – just mouth-watering! Bell Peppers are also known as Capsicums and in Hindi, they are known as Shimla Mirch.
