Color Pepper Chicken

After almost 8 days today we saw a bright sunny day. From last Sunday day light savings stopped so within 4.30 pm outside becomes dark. Still if it’s a sunny day feel like to do some household works, but in a cloudy day I never feel like to do anything. But during winter most of the days are like that.
Yesterday I brought some colorful peppers, from the shop itself I felt like to do something with them. So prepared some chicken with all those colorful peppers and believe me my plate was looking so attractive. The recipe I tried it’s completely came from my mind during cooking. Step by step I just did as it came in my mind. Hope you all like my little different recipe.

Aloo Patol er Dalna or Potato Parwal Curry

Among all the vegetables one of my favorite is Patol or Parwal. Anything with Patol makes my day. But the problem is that my husband dosen’t like it at all except Patol er Dorma (my patol er dorma recipe is here . So no other option some time I cook for myself also. He used to have the potato from this Aloo Patol er Dalna or Potato Parwal Curry. But the probelem is that in the Indian grocery store they have very limited stock of Patol or Parwal, so everytime I am not so lucky.

This one I cooked like my Maa-in-law used to cook. She is dosen't add that much of spice because of my father in-laws health but I just made it little spicy. This is one the popular Bong delicacy.
