A very very simple recipe using nothing but capsicum alone as the main ingredient. Its easy to make for the early morning rush hour dabba's! The flavour for this rice is the cumin seeds and capsicum...So, be generous on the cumin seeds...

- 1 Capsicum finely chopped
- 1 tsp cumin seeds/jeera
- 1/4 tsp chilly powder or more as per preference
- Salt to taste
- 1 tsp oil

Prep time: 5 mins             Cook time: 20-25 mins


- Cook the rice such that each grain is seperate and not sticky.

- In a pan heat the oil, add the cumin seeds and when it crackles, add the capsicum.

- Fry the capsicum for a minute before adding the chilly powder and salt.
- Keep frying the capsicum until it turns translucent and fully cooked. This may take about 10 mins in medium heat.

- Mix the fried capsicum with rice and pack your dabba with any raita of your choice.
