Jump to recipe

Aloo Shimla Mirch Sabzi is an Indian stir fry made with potatoes and bell peppers.  Generally a dry dish with a variety of spices, you can serve it for lunch or dinner with roti or dal.

A few months ago, I was talking to my cousin Sweetu about how I couldn’t think of a vegetable dish to make for dinner that night.  I love bouncing off ideas with her.  We generally have a LOTS to talk about.  Anyways, she suggested I make this Aloo Shimla Mirch Sabzi and gave me her recipe.  I had all the ingredients on hand so I decided to give it a go.

Aloo Shimla Mirch is a very popular stir fry in India.  Especially in north India.  I happened to use red bell peppers for this particular instance but feel free to use any color bell peppers.  Or even a mix of colors.  They will enhance the final
product and bulk up your sabzi.

Typically, you can make it dry or with a gravy of tomatoes and onions.  For this recipe that my cousin gave me, it’s dry and uses a variety of spices.  I love the ease and simplicity of this recipe and it has now become a favorite in our house.
