Potato N Bellpepper Masala Rice

Boiled potato chunks and crunchy bell pepper pieces makes this masala rice more tasty and delicious...This masala rice is quite a simple, easy and quick rice dish which suits definitely prefect as lunch box menu...I used to prepare this sort of masala rice often in case i have bought loads of veggies from farmer's market, this time i bought a bag of green and red bell peppers and i prepared this potato and bell pepper combination coz my familly members love anything with potatoes..This is an easiest  and my usual way to insert veggies in our daily menu because i have picky eaters at home..making out simple rice dishes tossed with few spice powder with plenty of chopped veggies always makes any rice dish more tastier na!!!!This is how i feed my picky eaters at home, so that i can easily feed them with any veggies they hate to eat as stir fries or as any sort of side dishes...If u go through my blog u may see many rice dishes prepared as simple masala rice with many sort of veggies..This rice dish also needs hardly few minutes to prepare if u have already some cooked left over rice...

I love bell pepers, hubby likes them but he can't digest them that good, so i tend to use them rarely, but i have been wantng to make something with bottled roasted pepers for a while, so when i make them willsend you that.
