Capsicum(colour full) Rice
Capsicum is one of my all time fav. veg. I regularly use capsicum in almost all my cooking. This time i want to try with Capsicum rice,,with different coloured bell peppers..the result is here...
Cooked Basmati rice 2cup
Different coloured Capsicum(Bell Pepper)(I have used 3 coloured capsicum 1/2 each)
Red Onion 1(big)
1/4 Cup boiled peas (or frozen peas)
2 TBSP of cooking oil
1/2tsp of Ghee(to mix with cooked rice)
Dry Red Chilly Flacks 1tsp(or as per spice)
1tsp of cumin seed
Black pepper powder 1/4 tsp
Fresh Coriander chopped 1tsp(for garnishing..optional)
1 tsp Lemon juice
Salt to taste
How to Prepare The Rice:
Transfer the cooked rice to flat plate, add the ghee and pepper powder, mix gently with the flat end of a ladle,without breaking any lumps during the process.
Chop the capsicum and onion..as you want or like below...
Heat oil in a wok, fry the cumin,Add chopped capsicum,saute for 2min then add red onion,saute till it is tender.The onions would have acquired a golden brown colour and brown spot would have come on capsicum, just cooked by now,then add boiled or frozen peas and saute for a min then add lemon juice,salt and Chilly Flack,mix well again and turn off the flame.Transfer this into the cooked rice plate.
Gently blend the ingredients well with the rice with a ladle or using fingers until the grains are coated properly.
The Colour full Capsicum rice is ready to serve.
Garnish with Chopped coriander Before serving(If required,I have not used)..
