Capsicum Rice

I tried this rice on my own. It was all a mix and match for me while cooking this recipe. I almost used the same ingredients that I generally use for making for sambhar powder, but added some extras to get a different flavour. And ooh lala!! it was perfect which I could not believe. So here it goes….

Capsicum Rice


Capsicum – 3 medium size (chop in long strips)

Rice – 1 cup cooked

Coconut – 1/2 cup grated

Oil for frying

For Grinding:

Red chillies – 4

Cinnamon – 1: piece

Corriander seeds – 2 tsp

Cumin seeds – 1/2 tsp

Urad dal (broken) – 1/2 tsp

Bengal gram – 1/2 tsp

For Seasoning :

Mustard seeds – 1/2 tsp

Urad dal – 1 tsp

Bengal gram – 2 tsp

Curry leaves – few

Cashew nuts – 6 – 7 (optional)


The ingredients, that are mentioned in the “for grinding” list, fry them in the oil till they are brown in color. Remove from fire and cool it. Blend it to a fine powder, and keep it aside.

Spread the cooked rice in a plate and cool it.

For seasoning, heat 2 tsp  oil, add mustard seeds and wait till it splutters, then add urad dal, bengal dal, curry leaves. If you want it, add cashew nuts and fry them for few minutes. Now add the chopped capsicum and fry it till it is soft.  Then add the grated cocunut and fry them till brown.

Now add cooked rice, masala powder, salt to taste and cook it for some more time. Serve it hot with appalam.
