Ingredients
For cooking millet
  • 1 cup Little millet
  • 1.5 cups Water
  • 1 tsp Oil
  • Salt to taste
Other ingredients for capsicum rice
  • 1 Green capsicum
  • 1 Red capsicum (Optional, green capsicum can be used instead)
  • 1 Yellow capsicum (Optional, green capsicum can be used instead)
  • 2 tbsp Oil
  • 2 tbsp Coriander leaves (Finely chopped)
  • 1 tbsp Garlic (Finely chopped)
  • 1 tsp Red chili flakes
  • 1 tsp Black pepper powder
  • 1/2 tsp Dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp Dried thyme
  • Salt to taste
Instructions
  1. Cook the millet and keep it aside. I have posted a separate post on how to cook the fluffy millet.

  2. When millet is getting cooked, chop capsicum into thin slices. Finely chop garlic as well. I haven't added onion, you could add finely chopped onions as well to this.

  3. Heat a pan and add oil. Once the oil is heated, add finely chopped garlic.

  4. Now add red chili flakes, dried thyme, dried oregano and black pepper powder.

  5. Add chopped capsicum, salt and mix everything. Let it cook on high flame for 5 minutes. When cooked on high heat, capsicum will retain the crunch and yet cooked inside.

  6. Add cooked and cooled millet and mix everything well. Adjust salt if required and let it heat for 5 minutes.

  7. Switch off the flame and add chopped coriander leaves. Mix everything well and Capsicum rice is ready to serve!
