Capsicum masala rice recipe is a very easy and delicious dish which you can enjoy with simple raita. This rice is prepared by sautéing the capsicum, onion, tomato with spices and then mixed with cooked rice.

The best part is that you can make this dish even with leftover rice. I added green, red, yellow bell pepper to prepare this rice.

The rice is a little bit spicy as I added green chillies along with other spices. So, adjust the spices and green chillies according to your taste.
