Capsicum Masala Rice

Weekend, i got a beautiful opportunity to buy a bag of green bellpeppers for dead cheap price, immediately my H asked me whether its gonna be capsicum week, with a smile i said y not...I dont want to disappoint him so our today's sunday lunch went for this delicious capsicum masala rice along with king frish fry..Both together tastes fantastic and we had a beautiful and delicious sunday lunch..This masala rice goes for a special spice powder prepared along with few spices,grated coconut, sesame seeds and peanuts..This rice doesnt even need onions or either ginger garlic paste, so no chopping, sauting and all..Sending to Akila's DIsh Name Starts With C..

Capsicum Masala Rice
