Capsicum Coconut Rice
Capsicum, coconut rice sounds a bit strange isn’t it?
I used to always wonder why my mum would get angry when I would demand “something new and delicious”. I never understood her exasperation until I started making tiffin for my husband early in the morning.
Usually Shivesh is not a fussy eater but he doesn’t like Indian dishes like rice and curry everyday in his tiffin. So I like to make something quick yet delicious for him and I try to come up with new rice dishes as he prefers rice a lot.
Try this recipe and serve it with anything or just on it’s own.
