Capsicum (Bell Pepper) Egg

Capsicum egg is a healthy side dish which goes excellent with rice and roti. Capsicum is the common name referred by Asians and Australians. In Us and Canada they are called as Bell pepper. Capsicum is very good for health. Capsicums have very high content of vitamin A, C and E. It also has almost the whole range of vitamin B complex. It also has many medicinal values. In this Capsicum egg, I used spices but you can also avoid spice, which can be served to kids.
