Aloo Capsicum Rice

Today I have another lunch box recipe and this is made with the ever favourite potatoes and capsicum. This is an easy and simple recipe that you can make for kids lunch boxes or you can have this on a lazy day, when you don't feel like cooking! You can have this rice with chips or raita and it tastes yum!

1. I like the capsicum to remain slightly crunchy so I don't cook it for too long. If you want a well cooked capsicum, cook it for longer.
2. You can make this with basmati rice too.
3. You can add some green peas along with capsicum and potatoes.
4. You can use ginger garlic paste and add fresh mint leaves separately.

Until next time,
