Carrot Capsicum Rice

 

CARROT CAPSICUM RICE

 Bell peppers are the most wanted veggie in our household and if I’ve got all the colors then it’s a celebration. Carrot Capsicum rice is another one pot meal which satisfies the day’s need in every criteria and they’re rich sources of antioxidants and vitamin C. To prepare this dish we need a multi purpose powder which you can use it for preparing carrot rice, vaangi bath and can be added to beet stir fry or beans poriyal, to enhance the taste and flavor of the dish. So I used to have this powder in store….so handy.
