1. Heat oil in a pan.
2. Fry the garlic and the onion.
3. Add salt and fry a bit.
4. Make a thick paste of the turmeric powder, chilly powder, corriander powder and cumin powder. I prefer making a paste and adding it to the onions.
5. Fry with the spices by sprinkling water, till the onion is cooked.
6. Add the capsicum. Fry for around 2 minutes.
7. Added the sliced tomatoes. Mix well, cover and keep on medium flame. It will cook with the juice of the tomatoes.
