Garlicy Capsicum Rice



A simple and quick lunch box idea for capsicum lovers.

Ingredients:
1/2 cup rice- sona masuri or Basmati
1 capsicum cut into strips
Salt and crushed black pepper to taste
For tadka: 1 Tbsp oil / butter, 2 chopped garlic cloves, 1 tsp mustard seeds, 1 tsp cumin seeds, 2 - 3 red chillies - broken into small bits, few curry leaves

Method:
* Cook rice adding a cup of water.
* Heat oil and add tadka ingredients. When cumin seeds start changing color to a few shades darker, add capsicum. Cover and cook until capsicum softens.
* When done, add rice, salt and pepper. Mix well and serve.

This is going to be my contribution to "Cooking with Capsicum". Check what other marathoners are cooking at BM #34.
