It happens only when you prepare those onion capsicum pakodas that too with using all homegrown vegetables. Yes, I have used my homegrown red bell pepper (Red shimla mirch) and onion. So it has to be the tastiest one.
If you a gardener then you can certainly realize the joy of gardening & harvesting vegetables from the own kitchen garden. When you prepare something with those vegetables then that has to be the most delicious dish, haha. Is this not true?
I have total 6 red capsicum plants grown in pots on the rooftop. I collect seeds from a red capsicum that I bought from the local market. I sowed a few seeds and got many seedlings within two weeks. I transplanted those in 6 separate pots/containers/grow bags. But within a few days all of those were seriously affected by insects. I thought those will not survive and after applying insecticide for 2-3 times those plants survived and now those are producing fruits.
I also grew a few onions that too in a wooden container. That I shared in my earlier posts. Many of you surely noticed those. I harvested onion last month and a few were still in our kitchen inventory. That is why I decided to utilize those last few onions to make onion capsicum pakoda.
I was so excited because I utilized homegrown capsicum as well as onion to make those.
Each & every pakoda was so crispy. Those were really delicious and I was happy inside. The joy of growing your own vegetables is really very special and finally use those to make something very tasty, ohhhh I mean the tastiest. So are you ready to have some of those?
