Channa & Bellpepper Pulao

Whenever i feel like lazy, i always goes for one pot meal like simple fried rice or simple pulao with veggies..Even yesterday while planning for something simple and easy rice dish for our lunch, i prepared this delicious channa and bellpepper pulao since i have some already cooked chickpeas sitting in my fridge with green bellpeppers chunks..This pulao is really very quick, a prefect lunch box menu dish, which goes awesome along with potato chips or boiled eggs..I served this delectable pulao with simple onion raita and potato chips for our lunch..Sending this pulao to Lubna's Joy from Fasting to Feasting and to CWF-LB-Chickpeas guest hosted by Nithu, event by Kiran and to Neha's Kid's Menu...
