I tried out the Capsicum Rice today and it turned out yummy…! This fast and flavorful dish is a simple  and quick one, without compromising taste and flavor.
Capsicum tastes great, when mixed in curries. It supplies the rice with a colorful look of savor.
Also, this vegetable is used as a spice and medicine.
Capsicum is rich in nutritional value and associated with numerous health benefits. Adding capsicum  to our food, increases the metabolic rate and thus burns excess calories. Capsicum, truly deserves to be included in our daily menu...!
