I make this dry aloo capsicum sabzi very often. Just wonder why it took me so long to post this. I used to saute the onions and potatoes simultaneously in this. However, the potatoes can be fried separately. But this step makes the cooking process easier and adds a beautiful taste to the potatoes. Adjust the spices as per your tastebuds.
