Zucchini & Bell Pepper Sweet & Sour Curry.
This combination of Zucchini & Bell pepper goes well & this curry has a tangy & sweet taste. Adding peanuts brings in a crunch too. This recipe i learnt from a friend here & loved it! Something different, but really tasty & a good accompaniment for Chapatis.

Onion - 2
Garlic - 1 pod

Tamarind - small lime size (soaked in water)
Sambhar Powder - 2 tsp
Brown Sugar - 3 tsp or more
Peanuts - 1/4 cup ( Dry roasted & Unsalted)

1. Cut the Zucchini, Bell Pepper & Onions into medium sized cubes.
2. Add oil in a pan, fry in the chopped garlic. Then add the onions & fry till transparent. Add the tomatoes & fry till its completely cooked.
3. Now add the sambhar powder & fry till the raw smell goes off. Then add in the bell pepper & Zucchini & mix all well. Add the tamarind extract & brown sugar, salt & bring to a good boil.
