There are also many variations to making this simple capsicum rice, by usng sliced onions, some chopped tomatoes, garam masla, bay leaves, ginger garlic paste , for those who want a masala taste to the rice .
In fact you can make this dish again and again by using several variations . i kept it simple as the dish not only has a good taste , not too spicy , and kids can enjoy easily . My base powder as the flavouring agent is the key to this recipe and many more rice varieties while making quick lunch box dishes ., it is such a versatile powder i use it liberally from making chutneys, garnish several gravies, to dry curry roast , that i always look forward to making some variety rice for lunch box as an excuse to whip up a laarge batch of this curry powder .
