Capsicum Rice-Capsicum Masala Rice-Bell Pepper rice

Here is a quick, colorful, flavorful and delicious rice recipe. It hardly takes 10 minutes to prepare this dish.Once rice is kept ready,this dish can be prepared in a jiffy and is also a perfect lunch box recipe.I have used all colored capsicums to make the rice look appealing, but you can prepare the same with green capsicums alone.
