Capsicum-Mushroom Rice

I have so fallen in love with mushrooms!!Oyster mushrooms are my favorite!! I have always used mushrooms to make dry curries and used it as toppings on pizzas. I just tried using it along with capsicum, peas and carrots and made a spicy rice. It tasted Awesome!! This is a very easy recipe to make and gets done in a jiffy!


Ingredients:

Mushrooms - 2 Cups (You can use any kind of mushrooms)
Capsicum - 1 medium sized - Diced
Green Peas and Carrots - 1 cup (I used frozen)
Cooked Rice - 3 cups
Butter - 1 tbsp
Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
Garam Masala - 2 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/4tsp
Red Chilli Powder - 1/4 tsp
Salt - According to taste


Method:

  • In a pan, melt the butter and add the cumin seeds. Once the seeds start to sizzle, add the capsicum and saute it for a few minutes.
  • Once the capsicum is cooked halfway through, add the sliced mushrooms and mix well.
  • Add the turmeric powder, red chilli powder and salt.
  • Mushrooms release a lot of water and get soft as they are being cooked.
  • Once the mushrooms are cooked, add the frozen peas and carrots and mix all the veggies well.
  • Once all the veggies are cooked, add the Garam Masala powder and mix well and turn off the flame.

  • Mix the veggie masala with the cooked rice.
  • Serve hot with Raita and enjoy your quick fix meal!!
