Green Pepper and Tomato Curry

This is so simple to make with great results; the flavours really work well together!
1 ½ green bell peppers
400g tin of tomatoes
1 tsp sunflower oil
1 tsp cumin seeds
¼ tsp salt
1 ½ tsp mild chilli powder
¼ tsp turmeric powder
½ tsp garam masala
1tsp brown sugar ( I leave this out to make it IPD friendly)
Peel the tomatoes if you can be bothered- I don’t as I think they add a little extra flavour!
Cut the green pepper and tomatoes into large chunks- peppers about 1 inch squares and tomatoes into quarters.
Or open tin if cheating!
Heat the oil in a wide pan and add the cumin seeds.
Stir about, then add the green pepper and sauté for 2-3 minutes.
Add the tomatoes and cook, stirring, for 5 minutes, mashing them down as they soften.
Add the salt, chilli powder, turmeric, garam masala and brown sugar.
Stir well, then simmer, covered, for 7 minutes, or until the pepper are cooked to your liking. Best served at once with a good helping of cauliflower rice

What beautiful colours!! Makes me wish I could eat green peppers. I used to love them when I was younger, but nowadays they give me horrible indigestion! I don't have that problem with the red and yellow and orange ones though. Somehow I don't think they'd be as pretty as the green ones here!
