Capsicum rice recipe, capsicum chitranna


capsicum rice

Capsicum rice with colourful capsicums without any grinding part, similar to chitranna with capsicum.
I have tried capsicum with the spice powder, also known as masala capsicum rice. I am not a big fan of it. I thought initially I didn’t do it right and tried again couple of times, but then I realized I don’t like that flavour together. The capsicum and the roasted coriander seeds flavour. So never make it. When I had stock of the tri coloured capsicum, wanted to try something with it and something simple too. So found this simple capsicum chitranna. I loved this simple recipe and the flaovur, taste too.
