Colourful Bell Peppers

Bell peppers have a lot of nutrients.They are loaded with vitamin c and folic acid.They are tangy and crunchy and have a very smooth texture.They can be used in salads,sandwiches,pastas and meat.Bell peppers come in a variety of colours like red,green,orange and yellow.Recently I bought bell peppers from the supermarket  to make a special dish for my daughters birthday.I fried beef and then cooked it with all the colourful  bell peppers.Not only was this dish  presentable at the table,it was greatly relished by  the party guests who were all in their teens.I  used  a lot of spices and herbs to give it an unbeatable aroma and flavour.

You could also use bell peppers  to garnish food.I love to top them on pizzas and my meat curries.The coloured peppers actually tempt your tastes buds and  your senses too.I cannot wait to try another recipe using these colourful peppers.
You can follow this beef recipe and add the colourful bell peppers in the final stage of cooking.

Dinner Rolls

This is a curry made out of onions,bell peppers ,tomatoes and potatoes.Whenever I have left over dinner rolls that was bought from the baker ,I make a new  curry as a filling for the buns.When the children get tired of eating the same food ,they relish  a change of flavour.This is something I usually make for breakfast or dinner with the left over buns.This meal is made in  a jiffy .I am sure all you vegetarians out there will enjoy trying  this recipe. I also make use of these buns to make hot dogs.

This is prepared according to the amount you need to fill up the buns.I will give you the recipe to roughly  fill 3-4 buns.

You will  need: one big sliced onion,a big green pepper sliced hoarsely,one tomato chopped roughly and  a small potato cut in tiny pieces.Saute the onions,bell peppers,and potato in a tablespoon of oil.When it turns pale in colour, add 1/2 teaspoon black pepper powder and the chopped tomatoes.Add salt to taste and cook until the onions  and the  green bell peppers start to wilt.You can also add a dash of soya sauce and a spoonful  of tomato ketchup to get an extra zing.
