Just like red and green varieties, yellow bell peppers too come packed with their own set of health-giving properties. Not just beautiful and happy to look at, the yellow capsicum is distinct in taste and the benefits it can endow you with. A fantastic way of taking in the much-needed dose of iron and protein in sufficient quantity. Also a potent source of antioxidants like Vitamin C and Vitamin E along with the fat-soluble agent Vitamin A. It does contain Vitamin B6 and potassium too. The presence of all these nutrients gives yellow capsicum its anti-inflammation and even anti-cancer properties. But what actually sets the yellow ones apart from other bell peppers is the presence of lutein and zeaxanthin carotenoids in abundance.
Where cooking techniques are concerned, they are not much different from those recommended for other bell peppers. You can grill, roast, steam, saute and stuff these ones too. But take care not to overcook them and destroy the essential nutrients.
Soil should be mixed with well rotten Cow dung. Sow seeds in rows at distance of 1.5 feet between row to row and 1.0 feet between plant to plant. Water it immediately and then water as per requirement.
