Green Pepper & Tomato Curry (VEGAN)
1 1/2 (sweet) green (bell) peppers
300g (10oz) ripe tomatoes
1 tsp sunflower oil, or other tasteless vegetable oil
1 tsp cumin seed
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp mild chilli powder
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
4 tsp dhana jheera (recipe below)
1/2 tsp garam masala (recipe below)
1 tsp brown sugar
Peel the tomatoes if you can be bothered - if you don't, you'll
get pieces of tomato skin in your sauce, but they'll be quite big
and easy to pick out. I think they add a little extra flavour as
Cut the bell pepper and tomatoes into large chunks - peppers about
1 inch squares and tomatoes into quarters.
Heat the oil in a wide pan and add the cumin seeds. Stir about,
then add the green pepper and saute 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, dhana jheera, garam masala
and brown sugar. Stir well, then simmer, covered, for 7 minutes,
or until the pepper is cooked to your liking. Best served at once.

the heat and grind together.
