This Serves 2:
Rice- one cup-- Cook it and keep aside, as you would do for any other rice item. Basmati rice'd be exemplary. I used normal one.
Keep these handy-
Curry leaves - a few
Green chillies- 5-6 - Cut vertically
Onion-1 medium-finely chopped
Capsicum-One cup-chopped as per preference
Coriander leaves- Finely chopped-about 2 tsp
Heat a tsp of ghee and saute with these until the raw smell vanishes-
Jeera (cumin) & coriander seeds 1 tsp each,
3tsp of bengal gram (kadle bele),
Half cm of cinnamon,
1-3 Cloves, a pinch of cardamom powder(or one cardamom)
Grind masala to a fine powder and keep aside
Add Oil on a tawa, once its hot, splutter mustard seeds, add few curry leaves(bay leaves), Green chillies, finely chopped onions. Once the onions turn golden brown, add chopped capsicum. Saute only till the capsicum is partially cooked. Let them retain their natural crustiness. Add ground masala and remove from heat and saute until well mixed. Mix it with rice once it is little cool with needed salt and chopped coriander leaves. Tastes best when served hot.
I assure it'l be a hit!!
