Capsicum Stir Fry| Capsicum Recipes

Capsicum stir fry is really crunchy and
simple to cook recipes, for this recipe you have to saute diced colorful capsicums with chopped tomatoes and spices. You can serve this stir fry recipe
as side dish with gravy and flat-bread.
I love capsicum or bell pepper just
because of crunchy taste and vibrant colors of yellow, green, red and orange. It
contains antioxidants like beta carotene, lutein and zeaxanthin
(phytochemicals) and vitamin C. After consumption of capsicum, the body
converts beta carotene into retinol, which is one of the most usable forms of
vitamin A. These combine together and minimize damage caused by the free
radicals to the tissues, arteries and nerves and it also helps in prevention
and treatment of heart diseases, osteoarthritis, bronchitis, asthma, cataract
etc. (google.com)
