Capsicum Rice

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.

Capsicum Rice


Cooked rice – 1 Cup

Capsicum – 2 Small cubed

Masala powder – 2 tbsp

Onion 1 Medium chopped

Coriander Leaves

Curry Leaves

Salt to taste

Amchur Powder 1 Tsp ( My Addition)

Oil 2 tbsp

Masala Powder

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.
