Capsicum-rice

An easy capsicum rice which my MIL had tried few times after learning it from a TV show. Its easy for me because,there is no grinding part,just make it like the mild pulav we usually make….I made this today as per her instructions and the taste is just awesome!

Ingredients:

Basmati rice 1 & 1/2 cups
Capsicum,small 3 nos.
Mixed vegetables,chopped 1 cup
Onion 2 nos.
Tomato 2 nos.
Sambar powder(ref side bar)
(Replace with redchilli powder and coriander powder)
2 tsp
Green chilli 2 nos.
Mint leaves(optional) few
Salt as needed
Water 2 cups

To temper:

Oil + ghee 4 – 5 tblsp
Cinnamon 1 inch stick
Cumin seeds 2 tsp

  2. Heat oil and ghee in the pressure cooker or heavy bottomed pan,temper with cinnamon and jeera.
    Temper
  3. Add onion and fry till transparent,add tomatoes and fry till soft.

  4. Add the veggies along with green chillies,mint leaves and fry for 2 minutes in medium flame.

  5. Add the chopped capsicum,sambar powder and fry for 2 minutes.
    Add capsicum
  6. Drain the soaked rice and fry in a non stick pan with a tsp of ghee until the moisture evaporates.
    Rice fry
  7. Mix the rice with the capsicum mixture and add water,salt and bring to boil. Pressure cook for three whistles in medium flame.
    Pressure cook
  8. Serve with any kind of raita and chips.

Notes:

  • Veggies I used – potato,carrot,babycorn and beans. Its purely optional and of your choice.
  • The water ratio I used was 1 : 2 (First picture), so it was bit on softer side and sticky. (my MIL and FIL wont like the rice to be dry and separate).
  • Other two pictures of the capsicum rice are the click of the same recipe I tried with water ratio 1: 1& 1/2 ..Also I used red chilli powder 1/4 tsp instead of green chillies and hence the colour change…

  50. Just tried this for lunch today. Came to your blog from Sandhya's Kitchen :)
    Lovely flavour. I added just turmeric, chilli and coriander powders as did not have the sambar powder as per the recipe... and was too lazy to make it :D

    But, the taste was wonderful... especially with curd!
