    2. Now add the chopped tomato and capsicums.
    3. To this add coriander powder and salt and close the lid tightly.
    4. Let all the above ingredients simmer for about 10 minutes. Make sure you have closed the lid tightly because the capsicum will get cooked in its own juice. Make sure capsicum does not get overcooked and meshy.
