I remembered 'P' making this delicious and spicy 'Capsicum rice' in New York. Gave her a call...got the recipe and fixed dinner for S's family!
'P' mentioned that she got the original recipe from www.vahrevah.com.
Here is the recipe from their website:
1) Prepare white basmati rice and let it cool.Grains should be separate.
2) Slice the Peppers. Dry roast the 'masala' ingredients given in the recipe. Grind the masala ingredients.
4) Add the cooked rice.Toss. Add 2 tsp Ghee.Toss again.
