Today I was planning to make any type of spicy rice dish and I had only one big capsicum left in my refrigerator and around about 1/2 cup of grated raw mango !! So immediately decided to make capsicum rice, but using raw mango in place of lemon juice (making capsicum rice using lemon juice is a regular breakfast dish in Karnataka, almost every household does that and we call it as nimbe hannina(lemon) chitranna, but then in that recipe we use finely chopped capsicum). And during the process I though let me add in fenugreek seeds powder also, so that the rice preparation will have all the tastes/rasas ie…hot, sour, sweet (obtained from both capsicum & raw mango), bitter and salt ! You can store this (prepared tempering) for up to 3 or 4 days in the refrigerator and can be mixed with small quantity of rice whenever needed or it can be prepared and mixed with the rice immediately, depending on the quantity of cooked rice being used. A suitable dish for lunch box too. So …. here ⇓ is the recipe for a simple, healthy, yummy dish.
