Capsicum rings are little common.. I have had it many times before.. But this time i tried this green garlic sauce and it enhances the taste of this rings. It completely changes the taste of the rings.. Little sweet and tangy sauce with strong coriander taste which enhances the taste of the rings..

Capsicums tastes great and the addition of mustard adds that zing.
