Rajma & Bellpepper Pulao

Personally i always feel that preparing pulao seems quite easier than making out briyanis after a late wake up that too on sundays, our's this sunday menu went for this easy and simple as well as quick pulao with rajma which i already soaked, cooked and frozen ,prepared along with sauteed bellpeppers with spices,which i mixed to the already cooked basmati rice...This pulao needs hardly few minutes if u have everything besides u...Easy pulao suits prefectly for a lunch box menu, even the little one at home love this delicious and mildly spiced rice with papads or with boiled eggs..Kidney beans are an excellent source of molybdenum. They are a very good source of folate, dietary fiber and manganese. Kidney beans are a good source of protein, thiamine, phosphorus, iron, copper, magnesium, and potassium. Needless to say how healthy those green bell peppers.This pulao goes for simple spices and am damn sure that everyone at home will definitely love this colourful, delicious, flavourful and healthy pulao..



1cup Cooked rajma
1no Bellpepper (chopped as cubes)
3cups Cooked Basmati rice
2nos Bay leaves
1/2tsp Cumin seeds
1no Onion (chopped finely)
2nos Slit opened green chillies
1/2tsp Red chilly powder
1tsp Turmeric powder
1tsp Coriander powder
1/2tsp Garam masala powder
Salt
Oil
5nos Curryleaves

Heat enough oil and fry the bay leaves, cumin seeds together until they turns brown, add immediately the chopped onions, curryleaves and cook well until the onions turns transculent, add immediately the cooked rajma beans, coriander powder, turmeric powder, slit opened green chillies, red chilly powder, salt, garam masala powder and toss gently in simmer until the oil get separates,now add the bellpepper cubes cook for few minutes until they get half cooked..Add the already cooked rice to the veggies-masala mixture and toss gently until the rice get well mixed with veggies..

Serve hot with papads or hard boiled eggs!
