Capsicum & Cashew Rice

Capsicum and cashew rice is a delicious rice. This less spicy rice is my favourite. I learnt the procedure from mom but made few changes to her original recipe. You can prepare it easily within short time with less effort.

Ingredients :

1. Basmati Rice - 1.5 Cups
2. Bell Pepper - 1 (Large, cut in to pieces)
3. Onion - 1/2 Cup (Chopped)
4. Cashew - 10 or 12 (Whole)
5. Green Chilly - 2 or adjust to your taste (Slit vertically)
6. Coconut Milk - 1 Cup
7. Water - 2 Cups
8. Bay Leaf - 2
9. Cinnamon Stick - 1
10. Oil - 1/2 tbs
11. Salt - Needed qty
12. Coriander - for garnishing




Procedure :

1. Heat oil in a pan. Add bay leaf and cinnamon. Fry for few seconds. Medium the flame.

2. Add onion, green chillies and capsicum. Fry well. Now add cashew and fry for few minutes.

3. Then add the washed rice. Fry for sometime.

4. Transfer to rice cooker. Add coconut milk, water and salt.

5. Mix well. Cook the rice.

6. Once cooking is done, garnish with coriander.

7. Serve hot with any spicy kurma or gravy.
