In our everyday meals, rice is always included in our dinner. I always like some twist in my rice preparation. I have a magnetic note pad on refrigerator, where I note all the veggies inside and which was telling me dear you have to do grocery, all you have now are few tomatoes and capsicum. I brought my eyebrows closer and lit bulb of my brains and sliced the veggies and started cooking and the end result was fabulous !!!..My hubby simply loved it and told me “I will stuff the refrigerator with capsicums, you make this for me everyday”.


Ingredients :


1 big sliced green capsicum

( you can add few sliced yellow and red capsicum to give color )

1 medium onion (sliced)

1 big tomato (sliced)

1 bay leaf

1 big cardamom

1 cinnamon (dalchini) bark

1 cumin seeds

4 tsp peppercorns crushed

1 tsp garam masala

1 tsp biryani masala

½ tsp coriander and cumin powder

½ tsp chilli powder

½ tsp turmeric

Salt for taste



Basmati rice cooked separately.




In a skillet heat oil. Now add cumin seeds, bay leaf, big cardamom, cinnamon bark , crushed pepper corn. Add the sliced onion, sauté till golden brown then add the sliced capsicum cook for 2 minutes then add sliced tomatoes. Add all dry spices : turmeric, coriander and cumin powder, garam masala, biryani masala, chilli powder and salt. Now cook till veggies cook well. Add this mixture to the cooked rice and mix well. Serve with curd /raita, few fryms or papad.
