1. Wash and clean capsicum, dice into cubes and keep aside.
2. In a pan, add besan / gram flour / kadalamavu and roast it on low flame till it releases a nice aroma. Transfer it to another plate and keep aside.
3. In the same pan, heat oil, splutter mustard seeds. Then add cumin seeds and wait till it sizzles.
4. Then add chopped onion, ginger garlic paste and chopped green chilies. Saute till onion turns golden brown in color.
5. Now add turmeric powder, red chili powder, coriander powder, garam masala, amchoor powder (dry mango powder) and mix well. Saute till the raw smell goes off.
6. Next add diced capsicum pieces and salt. Mix well. Cook uncovered on low medium flame till capsicum pieces get cooked well.
7. Once capsicum pieces are cooked well, add besan / gram flour one tablespoon at a time. Mix well so that the entire flour gets mixed well with capsicum. Add one more tablespoon of oil and keep mixing in medium flame for 5 – 6 minutes. Do not cover at this stage.
8. Garnish with chopped coriander leaves.

1. Roast besan / gram flour in low flame till it gets roasted well and becomes aromatic. It should not get burnt. So keep stirring.
2. While adding chickpea flour, don’t add the entire flour together. Add 1 tablespoon at a time or else, it will form lumps and the dish won’t be tasty.
3. You can add more oil and fry it more to get tastier subzi. But it is personal choice.
