  • 1 cup- uncooked brown Rice (Uncle Ben's works the best)
  • 2 medium size green bell peppers or 1 green and 1 sweet pepper (red/Orange) chopped fairly small
  • 1 Jalapeno chilli or the amount to suit your taste
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • Cilantro (as per taste)
  • 1/4 tsp - Jeera
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp- Olive or Canola Oil
  • 3 tbsp- shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • How to Make Brown Rice and Bell Pepper Pulao:

    1. Cook and set aside the brown rice with 1/2 tsp of salt according to the instructions on the package.
    2. Heat the oil in a heavy bottomed pan and toss in the jeera.
    3. Once it changes color, add the onions and chopped jalapeno chillies and saute for about 3 to 5 mins.
    4. Add the chopped bell peppers and continue to saute.
    5. The vegetables should not be too soft. The flavor is best when the peppers are still a bit crisp.
    6. Season with salt and pepper and add the chopped cilantro.
    7. Toss this mixture with the cooked rice. Add shredded cheese while still warm and serve immediately.
