For cooking millet

  • 1 cup Little millet
  • 1.5 cups Water
  • 1 teaspoon 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 tablespoon oil
  • 2 tablespoon coriander leaves (Finely chopped)
  • 1 tablespoon garlic (Finely chopped)
  • 1 teaspoon red chili flakes
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper powder
  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon dried thyme
  • Salt to taste


  • Cook the millet and keep it aside. Please check my detailed post on how to cook fluffy millet.
  • Meanwhile, chop the capsicum into thin slices. Also finely chop garlic. I haven't added onion, you could add finely chopped onions as well to this.
  • Heat a pan and add oil. Once the oil is heated, add finely chopped garlic.
  • Now add red chili flakes, dried thyme, dried oregano, and black pepper powder.
  • Add chopped capsicum, salt and mix everything. Let it cook on high flame for 5 minutes. Capsicum will retain the crunch when you cook them on high flame.
  • Add cooked millet and mix everything well. Adjust salt if required and let it heat for 5 minutes.
  • Switch off the flame and add chopped coriander leaves. Mix everything well and Capsicum rice is ready to serve!
