PEAS AND CAPSICUM BHATH

Ingredients:

Rice – 1½ cups
Peas – 3/4th cup Boiled (frozen or fresh….I have used frozen here)
Potato – 1 or 2 (chopped in small pieces)
Capsicum – 2 (chopped in small pieces)
Coriander leaves - ½ cup (chopped)
Curry leaves – 1 strand (chopped)
Turmeric - ½ tspn
Green chillies – 2 to 3 (depending on your taste)
Coconut – 1 tbl spn Grated (optional)
Lemon - ½ to 1
Salt as required

For seasoning:

Oil – 2 tbl spns
Mustard – 1 tspn
Bengal gram – 1 tspn
Black gram – 1 tspn
Ground nuts – 2 spoons

Preparation:

1. Cook rice with just enough water so that it doesn’t stick and spread it on big pan to separate the grains.
2. While that gets cooled, take a non-stick pan and add the entire seasonings one after the other starting from oil to groundnuts.
3. Then add curry leaves, green chillies, turmeric, capsicum and potato. Fry in oil till the capsicum and the potato is cooked.
4. Add in peas, coconut, rice, salt and finally coriander leaves. Mix them all properly until the rice gets coated well in the seasonings and the salt is in proportion.
5. Switch off the flame and squeeze lemon juice and mix well again.
