capsicum masaru sasive | dappa menasinakayi mosaru bajji recipe |dodda menasinakai recipe

Capsicum Masaru Sasive is a flavorful and spicy South Indian dish made with bell peppers (capsicum) cooked and  masale made with mustard and coconut is added. The dish combines the sweetness of capsicum with the pungency of mustard seeds and the creaminess of freshly grated coconut, creating a unique and delicious blend of flavors. Adding yogurt makes it a more flavorful and tastiest dish. Often garnished with curry leaves and served with rice or rotis, it is a popular choice for a comforting yet vibrant meal. The simplicity of ingredients and the complexity of taste make Capsicum Masaru Sasive a favorite in many households.
