Pepper Capsicum Rice


Pepper Capsicum Rice

Capsicum rice is easy to make and is a perfect lunch box recipe.I love to try different variations with rice dishes and many of the rice recipes around are no fail recipes and you can experiment with a variety of flavors.Capsicum definitely has its own unique flavor but it combines well garam masala, cumin or fresh herbs. Here I have used a combination of capsicum/bell pepper with fresh ground black pepper. 


Ingredients

Cooked Basmathi rice- 2 cups
Bell Pepper/Capsicum chopped- 1 cup
( I have used a combination of red, yellow and green)
Chopped celery- 1/3 cup
Chopped spring onion- 1/3 cup
Chopped onion-1 medium
Ginger garlic paste- 1 1/2 tsp
Fresh ground pepper- 1 1/2 tsp
(adjust according to your taste)
Garam masala- 1 tsp
Lemon juice-1/2 lemon
Butter/ Ghee- 1 1/2 tsp
Salt to taste


Heat Ghee/butter in a pan and add ginger garlic paste and saute for a minute. Add crushed black pepper and fry for a few seconds. Now add chopped onion and saute till it changes color, Next goes in chopped celery,bell peppers and white part of spring onion. Saute for two to three minutes and finally add rice, garam masala, green part of spring onion,salt and lemon juice. Saute and combine well. Serve the rice with raitha and papad or with any spicy veg or non veg curry.

Try this..
Hope you will all enjoy
