I am almost late in coming up with this weeks Cooking from Cookbook. I was leafing through my clippings and remembered the couple of Capsicum recipes, plus an exclusive listing of nearly 30 different recipes of featuring capsicum. I had capsicum of all colours, hoping I would end up making something. Those have been lying around for nearly a week.
Luckily all of them were still fresh and tempting. I decided to make this simple fried rice for the lunch today. Paired it with Nune Vankaya. I know it's a weird combination, however I strongly believe nune vankaya lends itself to anything and I wasn't wrong. The combination was so delicious. I made Coconut pulao for the boys and it was Tricolour Bell pepper Fried Rice for the rest of us.
I was happy in striking out another one from those clippings. Get ready to read some more bell peppers soon.
We have just another week to go before we start our Mega Marathon and I still have about six more states to do and none even written. I know it's going to be a hectic week ahead.
Do join us in the marathon and I am going to share some chocolate dishes as well. So watch out!
