Cabbage capsicum rice


Yayyy, my final post for the day (rather night). 2 weeks all these posts have been lying incomplete. Now, within the last 2 hours I have hit the button Publish quite a few times :). Like I have mentioned before, it gives me an immense pleasure when I press that button. Some sort of accomplished feeling I get and as I am writing this, I am realizing it’s time to check how many recipes I have posted so far. I started my foodblog 4 months back. Little did I realise, I would get so hooked on to it :). Ofcourse, I need to mention my family who’ve been nothing but supportive of me pursuing my passion! Well.. all my b’day posts I am realizing are recipes of MILs that are absolute keepers and recipes that you won’t come across on the internet (so far :)). Cabbage capsicum rice/ pulao is a simple and flavorful dish that is such a perfect lunchbox idea. Extremely yummy and ZERO masala items. Despite that, tastes super good. Takes literally 10 mins to make the dish if you have some cooked rice in hand. Try it and let me know how it turns out.
