Capsicum Bath | Bell Pepper Rice

Posted on March 15th, 2010

Its time to spring forward! Day light saving has started… yay more sunlight in the evenings :) Temperature is improving here in the windy city.  For the past one week we are enjoying mid 40s… smelling spring in the air :D

I bought fresh yellow and red bell pepper and tried variety rice using them. It was delicious. I observed that yellow and red bell pepper are bit sweet as opposed to the green ones. Here is the tasty bell pepper rice recipe.

    Hi anu,

    Why do u add black gram dhal? do u have to soak it before? how much u add it in?


    • Anu Says:


      While seasoning, we generally add very small quantity (say 1/4 tsp) of mustard, cumin seeds and urad dal (Black gram). This leaves a nice flavour and crunchy taste :) Adding these ingredients is purely optional.

      No u need not soak it before adding. Just 1/4 or 1/2 tsp of dal would do. Hope this helps. Thanks for visiting My Scrawls. Do keep in touch :)
