Colorful Pepper Pulao

pepper rice

This is my entry for the previous Blog Hop Wednesday, a wonderful interactive event started by Radhika of Tickling Palates. I was in a house full of “colds and coughs” and there was not much time to browse my partner’s blog and cook – Last week I was paired with Rudra of Mom’s Corner and sifting through her recipes to find one to blog, I decided upon this rice. I liked the idea but decided to make it with my own recipe and variations therein.

Colorful pepper rice

So here we go
Ingredients
1/2 each of Red, Yellow, Orange & Green bell peppers
1/2 medium sized Red/ purple Onion
3-4 green chilies sliced thin and long
1 tsp Urad Dal
1tbsp curryma powder (if you are using store bought curry-powder, would not recommend more than 1/2 tsp)
1.5 cups of basmati rice
2-3 tsp of oil

Pepper rice

Preparation
Dice into little cubes all the veggies
Heat a frying pan with the oil and saute the veggies with the salt, curry powder urad dal and chilies
Add the raw rice to the mix (wash and dab dry before you do this)
Stir in and roast for a minute or 2
The rice is fully seasoned at this point.

Either in a pressure cooker or in a rice cooker,  steam/pressure cook them using appropriate amounts of water – for a rice cooker 1/5 cups of rice will require 3 cups of water
Serve warm with a cilantro garnish

Enjoy this simple yet completely healthy and wholesome one pot meal anytime!
