Carrot Bell-Pepper Curry is a lightly spiced curry that tastes great
with rice. Reduce the chilli powder, and you can serve it as a
vegetable salad. This is a quick easy recipe you can make when you're
in a hurry.
These vegetables offer some important nutrients that are essential for
your health. Bell peppers are rich
in vitamin C and carrots in beta carotene and this is a great way to
get both from your meal. If you're also using red bell peppers, then
you're getting beta carotene from these as well.
