Cauliflower Capsicum Sabzi / Cauliflower Sabzi - Easy Side Dish For Chapathi !

Life without gadgets - laptop, internet, mobile is something different and also bit boring, today we had some internet issue and got the connection after 6 pm. I felt that I was left in an Island without no people around me. I even could not make India call or chat/call with any friends as my Landline also needs wifi. I don't know how to spend the day without my laptop and mobile but you know the day went very well, did some useful work. Yep.,Half of the day was spent in kitchen and cooked, clicked & cleaned. Morning for Breakfast made Dosa & Instant Kurma. And for lunch - Podalangai Poriyal, Sorakkai Kara Kuzhambu, Thatta Payir Rasam, And along with this cooked 4 new recipes for blog and took pictures of it. When I finished all these things time was 3 pm and then the rest of the day also went peacefully and now after the net connection its time for my Blog. Now coming to the recipe Cauliflower Capsicum Sabzi, this was lying in my draft for more than 3 months and totally forgot it.
