Capsicum in spicy curd gravy

This recipe will only take you 15 to 20 minutes to make. You don't need to grind any masala and you can make this curry with just a few ingredients from your pantry. I saved this recipe quite some time ago. Not sure which website I got it from, so not able to give due credits. Here is the recipe. Enjoy!

Ingredients 2 or 3 green bell peppers (use any color you like)
2 medium onions chopped
1/2 cup crushed tomato
3 or 4 green chillies slit into halves
1 cup yogurt (beat with a whisk and set aside)
1 tsp coriander powder
1 tsp cumin powder
1 tsp red chilli powder
1/2 tsp garam masala powder
Salt to taste
Oil as needed

Method1. Cube the bell peppers (not more than one inch pieces).
2. Pour oil in a pan, add the onions and cook for a few minutes until transparent.
3. Then add the green chillies and sauté.
4. Next add the bell peppers, coriander powder, cumin powder, garam masala powder and bell peppers and look on medium-low flame under tender.
5. Then add the crushed tomatoes and cook till the raw smell disappears.
6. Add the yogurt and salt and cook till the gravy becomes thick and blends well with the bell peppers.
