Capsicum Poriyal - Gujarati style (method)

My colleague brings this quote often. I love the flavour of it. I love the addition of besan flour in poriyal. I have posted snake gourd with besan flour. Kids love the flavour too. I started doing capsicum after my diet program couple of years before. In fact green capsicum is one of the vegetable recommended during my diet program. These days I buy traffic light (3 color capsicum) almost every week. I have posted many different capsicum dishes. Now enjoy this this tasty one too.. I can eat this as snack

Red Chilli powder - 1.5 to 2 teaspoon
Cumin seeds / jeera powder - 1 teaspoon
Coriander powder - 1 teaspoon
Salt per taste
Oil - 1 tablespoon
Onion - 1 (finely chopped)
