This is my mom's recipe. She always packs this for lunch for my dad. It can be prepared in a jiffy and tastes really good. A very good way to fix the left-over rice. Try it out...I'm sure you're going to love it!!


What you will need:
  • Cooked rice - 1 cup
  • Bellpepper/Capsicum - 1/2 cup
  • Onion - 1 large, chopped
  • Garlic - 1 tsp chopped
  • Green chillies - 2

  • Rasam powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Lime juice - 1 tsp
  • Oil - 1 tbsp

How to prepare
Heat oil in a pan. Add cumin seeds. When the cumin seeds crackle, add green chillies, chopped garlic and onion. Fry until the onion turns brown. Add turmeric powder and red chilli powder and mix. Now add the chopped capsicum and fry. Sprinkle a little water and cover and cook for 5 minutes. Add the cooked rice, salt and mix everything together. Cover and cook on a low flame for about 3 to 4 minutes. Add the rasam powder. Turn the heat off and keep the pan covered. The rasam powder will cook when you keep it covered.
