Capsicum Bath | Bell Pepper Rice

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 😀

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.

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 🙂
