Colored Capsicum Curry (No Onion No Garlic)

I make this curry often mimicking my mom's version of capsicum curry. I am sure my mom makes this curry with the regular green capsicum and eggplant. I found that this curry is suitable for those festival days and also for parties as this looks colorful on the buffet table!

For Day 3 of Week 1 of BM #31, here is the recipe..
