  6. Add capsicum and fry for 3-4 mins. I like capsicum to be crunchy. If you want it to get more cooked , you can fry for couple of minutes more .

  8. Switch off . Add some coriander leaves . Masala for capsicum corn rice is ready . This masala should not be too dry or liquidy . Hope you can make out the consistency from my picture.

  10. Relish the tasty capsicum corn rice as such or with some raita . If you allow it to sit for some time after mixing , the rice would taste more tasty as it would have taken in the flavors well.

    That's it . .isn't it very easy . I am sure you all would want to try it . Go ahead and try.. and when you do don't forget to share your feedback with me and a simple pic too. Happy Cooking !!

NOTE:

  1. In the above recipe since i have tried to make a quick version , i haven't added much veggies. But if you want you can add beans, carrot ,peas etc.
  2. You can use any spice powder that you like / thats available to flavor up the pulao . For ex , garam masala powder, biriyani powder , vangi bath powder etc .
  3. If using vangi bath masala don't use garlic. You can skip onions too .
  4. Instead of sweet corn you can use baby corn too .
  5. Don't make the rice mushy . It will spoil the taste. Add few drops of ghee / oil and few drops of lemon while making rice for pulao . This will help the rice grains to remain separate .
