  • In a heavy bottomed pan, add 1 tsp of oil, capsicums and fry nicely.
  • Add the pepper powder, salt and turmeric.
  • Sprinkle some water, till the capsicum gets cooked. (It should be little crunchy and do not cook to soft).

  • In the same pan, add 1 tsp oil, and add ginger garlic paste, green chillies and onion.
  • Saute them well, till the onion becomes soft.

  • When the rice gets cooked, add the capsicum and 1 tsp ghee and mix well.
  • Garnish with coriander leaves and serve hot with any raitha or any manchurian dishes.

1. Green chillies can be adjusted according to taste, as we are adding pepper also.
