Hello. I love your videos and just wanted to say you are an amazing person. I had a question. I don’t like bell peppers as much, so is there any alternative to bell peppers for any recipe and also keeping the nutrients in mind. Please let me know. Thank you so much.

Aww thank you, Shantu 🥰 It may depend on the recipe, but you can usually omit the bell peppers or substitute them for another veggie of your choice! In this recipe, celery, shredded carrots, or more tomatoes or onions are some ideas 😀

This looks amazing! What type of pickles should I use for the recipe? Sweet pickles or savory pickles?

Hi there Kels! Thanks for the question. Either type would be okay depending on your preferences 🙂
