Capsicum  rice is fast and flavorful simple recipe, easy and quick to make a delicious dish. The capsicum masala rice is made of a mixture of roasted spices and peanuts for spiciness and nuttiness with various colors of bell peppers added to make it very colorful.
This rice based dish is very refreshing for the fresh crunchy capsicums, masala flavor and crunchy peanuts that gears up the taste of the rice dish and make it an amazing and wonderful rice dish. Capsicum masala rice recipe  tastes truly delicious during the rainy and winter bringing in the season of bursting and vibrant colors of the bell peppers and heady spicy fragrance of the masalas.
 
Capsicum is a flowering plant in the nightshade family. Its species are native to the US where they have been cultivating for thousands of years by the people from tropical America. The fruit of capsicum plants have a variety of names depending on place and type. They are commonly called as chilli peppers, red or green pepper or bell peppers. The large mild form is called the bellpeppers in the US and Canada.
They are called paprika in some other countries (although paprika can also refer to the powdered spice made from various capsicum fruit). Some variety of Green Peppers is used as spices, vegetable and medicines. Capsicum fruits and peppers can be eaten raw or cooked. Those used in cooking are generally varieties of the C. annuum and C. frutescens species
 
They are suitable for stuffing with fillings such as cheese, meat or rice. Frequently used both chopped and raw in salads, or cooked in stir-fries or other mixed dishes and they can be sliced into strips and fried, roasted whole or in pieces, or chopped and incorporated into salsas or other sauces. They can be preserved in the form of a jam, or by drying, pickling or freezing. 
 
Dried peppers may be reconstituted whole, or processed into flakes or powders. Pickled or marinated peppers are frequently added to sandwiches or salads. Frozen peppers are used in stews, soups, and salsas. Extracts can be made and incorporated into hot sauces.
Bell pepper masala rice is a healthy rice dish made by combining cooked rice in a roasted spice blend of cinnamon, red chillis, blackgram, cumin, roasted peanuts and coriander seeds in ghee, infused with seasoning of mustard seeds, aromatic curry leavesand capsicums and garnished with roasted peanuts.
 
The crunchy peanuts both in the spice blend and as a garnish lend the rice its unmistakable flavor. The crunchy effect of Capsicum with coarse powder of groundnut gives the nice flavor. To the cooked rice, add a little Ghee and combine (each grain should be separate) and keep aside.
Heat a little ghee in a cooking vessel on medium heat and add cumin seeds and black gram and fry till the cumin splutters and the dal turns light brown. Add the coriander seeds, cinnamon stick, curry leaves and dry red chillies and fry further for another minute till the rawness disappears and the flavors come out. Finally add the roasted peanuts and combine with the other spices for a few seconds and turn off heat.
Once cooled, grind to a make a coarse powder. In the same vessel, add the remaining oil/ghee and once it’s hot, add mustard seeds and let them splutter. Add the curry leaves and let the flavor of the curry leaves come out and the leaves turn crisp. Add the sliced capsicums (green, yellow and red) and fry them for approx 3 minutes. Don’t over cook them; let the capsicums retain their crunchytexture.
 
Add salt to taste and combine well. Reduce heat and add the cooked rice and combine with the spice mixture. Add the grated coconut, roasted peanuts and ground masala powder and combine with the rice till its well mixed. Serve hot with pickle, yogurt, appadamspoppadams).
If served with any gravy curry would be a complete meal. This rice can also be prepared using other veggies like the carrots, potatoes, eggplants etc. The capsicum masala rice is an enticing dish full of flavors so I am sure you would not miss out on watching the video

@abhisheksehgal84 my SMALL, TINY BIT advice to you is that, do not show your knowledge where it is not required..you are watching him, he has not compelled you to watch him. Have some respect for others.
