Tips

White Rice:

  1. You can use Cooked Millets instead of White Rice, if you like it.

Ginger:

  1. I used more Ginger and reduced Chilli in this Capsicum Rice, similar to Pongal. It will be spicy and tasty. You can grate or finely chop the Ginger.

Green Chillies:

  1. Slit Green Chillies can be easily removed from the Rice, when serving it for kids or else you can fry the chillies into a dark shade to reduce its spice.

Capsicum:

  1. Capsicum can be cut finely and then it needs to be fried for 2-3 minutes only.

Sweet Corn:

  1. I used Sweet Corn for a natural sweetness, You can use Frozen Peas instead.
  2. As I used Sweet Corn, I fried the Onions along with it .But when you are using Frozen Peas you have to fry them separately after the Capsicum is cooked properly.

Sambar Powder:

  1. The unique taste for the Rice comes only from Sambar Powder so don't skip it. Fry for at least 30 seconds to get a perfect taste.

Final Tip:

  1. I made this Rice as Medium spicy. You can adjust the Chillies to make it less or more spicy as per your taste.
