I wanted a simple side dish to go with my chapattis, so this quick fix came to my mind with some leftover Bell Peppers and black Chickpeas. I gave an Indian tempering with mustard seeds and garlic and finished it off with some curry leaves and red chili sauce.
So this colourful fusion turned out awesome and delicious. A simple stir fry that can be dished out in no time. They can also be had along with noodles, as a wrap or in a pita bread. For a non-veg. version few chicken strips or prawns would be a great option.
