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.
Tips – Grill capsicums, stuff it with capsicum rice and serve it just to make it look more appealing
(Photograph taken before grilling the capsicum)
If you do not find time, you can add ready made coriander powder, chilli powder and cumin powder but if you have time, I suggest that you add freshly ground spice powder as it makes the dish more flavorful and tasty.You can check my other delicious capsicum rice recipes like corn capsicum pulao, capsicum gravy for rice, potato capsicum pulao and more capsicum recipes.
