How to Make Tomato and Bell-Pepper Rice

  • Wash and cook the rice.
  • Cook the rice and keep it aside to cool down.
  • Take a wok, add oil and cumin seeds to it.
  • When they start spluttering, add the green chillies and chopped onions and saute till they become soft and glazed.
  • Add the tomato puree and all the dry spices, and mix well.
  • One it starts bubbling a little, add the chopped green bell-peppers and saute again.
  • Add salt and cook covered for 10-12 mins, till the peppers are tender and cooked through.
  • Now add the chopped tomatoes, along with any of their juice.
  • Saute for a minute or so, then mix the cooked rice to it.
  • Mix everything together gingerly, so it gets coloured and the spices are evenly distributed.
  • Add the lemon juice, cover with a lid and allow to cook for another 8-10 mins on low-flame.
  • When the rice looks cooked, take it off the stove and transfer to a serving bowl.
  • Sprinkle the chopped cilantro and mix just to combine.
