Capsicum Stir-Fry

This is a quick and delicious side dish for roti as well as rice. I didn't add any additional masala's to this so that the original taste of the capsicum remains and its really tasty. Adding colored peppers enhances the taste and its attractive to the eyes! :) 

Chopped capsicum-1cup(I have used half of green and half of yellow capsicum here)
Chopped onion-2tablespoons
Chilli flakes-1teaspoon
Mustard seeds-1/2teaspoon
Urad dal-1/2teaspoon

Heat oil in a pan, add mustard seeds and let them splutter. Then add the urad dal and fry till it becomes golden in color. 
Now add the chopped onions and fry for 15-20 seconds, then add in the capsicum pieces. 
Fry on high heat for a minute, then add the chilli flakes and enough salt. 
Keep sautéing for 2 to 3 minutes on high heat. 
By now capsicum would have been cooked but still it has the crunchiness will remain.
Thats it, delicious capsicum stir-fry is ready.  Enjoy it with your choice of main course. I had it with rice - chayote dal - and boiled egg! :) 
Note: Keep an eye that onions and capsicum pieces are not be over cooked(i.e. soft!)
