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...
Ingredients: 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)..
