  • 2 cups of Rice
  • Capsicum- 2 big or 3 medium sized (cut into small cubes)
  • Green peas-1/2 cup
  • Coconut Powder - 1/2 cup
  • Chana Dal or Gram - 1 tbsp
  • Mustard Seeds or Rai -1/2 tbsp
  • Jeera or Cumin seeds - 1/2 tbsp
  • MTR Sambar powder - 1 tbsp
  • Vegetable Oil - 2 tbsp

  • How to Make Capsicum and Peas Pulav:

    1. Wash the rice thoroughly, cook it, and keep it aside. In a deep vessel, put oil, and add mustard seeds, cumin seeds, and chana dal.
    2. When the dal is slightly brown, add the capsicum pieces and cook for 2-3 minutes; then add peas.
    3. When cooked properly, add sambar powder, coconut powder, and salt; mix well and let it cook for 2-3 minutes.
    4. Add precooked rice to this mixture, taking care that the rice has cooled. If you add hot rice, the grains get mashed and it becomes sticky.
    5. Garnish with coriander or cilantro and serve hot with curd or yogurt.
