This is my 2rd week of Blog Hopping, the event started by Radhika of Tickling Palates and it has been fun. This week i am Hopping on to Mom’s Corner and as soon as i saw the post of capsicum rice i was decided on preparing that as i love capsicum. Do hop over her blog as well.
The capsicum rice turned out be very nice and loved the freshly ground masala. I followed the same recipe with only an addition of amchur powder.
Cooked rice – 1 Cup
Capsicum – 2 Small cubed
Masala powder – 2 tbsp
Onion 1 Medium chopped
Salt to taste
Amchur Powder 1 Tsp ( My Addition)
Oil 2 tbsp
Urad Dal – 1 tsp
Channa Dal – 2 Tbsp
Cumin Seeds – 1 tsp
Red Chilies – 7
Black Pepper – 1 tsp
Asafoetida – a pinch
1. Dry Roast all the ingredients under masala powder on a slow flame till the dals get a light brown color. When cooled grind to a fine powder.
3. Heat Oil in a pan, add curry leaves chopped onions and saute for a min and add capsicum. Let saute for a minute or 2 on a medium flame. The capsicum shouldn’t lose its crunchiness.
4. Add 2 tbsp of the masala powder salt and coriander leaves, give a nice mix
5. Add rice and amchoor powder and mix nicely.
Serve hot with plain curds or raita.
