Capsicum


American: Bell pepper
Tamil: koda milagai
Hindi: Simla mirch

Also called “Sweet Pepper”, it is a medium sized vegetable which is oblong in shape and hollow inside. The inside contains a few seeds which have to be removed before using.

Capsicum is available in several varieties : red, green, yellow, orange and purple.
Ripe red and yellow peppers have a milder and sweeter flavour than the green ones and are good to use in salads and stirfries.
The crunchy, more pungent green ones give flavour to cooked dishes.
