How to Make Capsicum and Peas Pulav

  • 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.
  • When the dal is slightly brown, add the capsicum pieces and cook for 2-3 minutes; then add peas.
  • When cooked properly, add sambar powder, coconut powder, and salt; mix well and let it cook for 2-3 minutes.
  • 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.
  • Garnish with coriander or cilantro and serve hot with curd or yogurt.
