Capsicum Rice

Hey everyone this is my first post for Blog Hop Wednesday and my partner for this week is Dhivya, there were many good options to choose from her blog and I must say its a very good job done by Dhivya… but because of my love for Capsicum I chose Capsicum Rice and it came out really very good and just to give a little twist to the original recipe I added some North Indian flavours to it and did not add Coconut… Hope you’ll like it Dhivya…  and a Special Thanks to Radhika for making everything happen…
Rice: 1 Cup
Capsicum: 4 Medium
Onion: 2 Medium
Tomato: 4 Medium
Garlic: 4 Cloves
Ginger: 1/2 inch
Oil: 3 Tbsp
Black Pepper, Cloves & Star Anise: 2 piece each
Salt: to taste
Red Chilly Pwdr: to taste
Coriander Pwdr: 2 Tbsp
Cumin Seeds: 1/2 Tsp
Asafoetida: a pinch
Garam Masala Pwdr: 1/4 tsp
  • Soak rice for one hour then boil it adding 4 cups of water, salt and whole spices. Take care not to over cook it.
  • Drain rice and spread it with fork and keep aside.
  • Grind together onion, tomato, garlic and ginger to a smooth paste.
  • Heat oil in a pan add cumin seeds & asafoetida when it crackles add paste and 1/2 cup water, then add salt, chilly pwdr, coriander pwdr & garam masala pwdr and cook till oil seperates and water evaporates.
  • Add chopped capsicum and 1/2 cup water, cook again with lid till water evaporates and then add rice and mix very gently.
  • Serve hot…
