Roast all the ingredients under Ground Masala in cooking oil, cool, and grind to a smooth powder.
Heat cooking oil in a nonstick pan, temper with curry leaves, mustard, urad dal, peanuts, and capsicum cubes.
Sprinkle turmeric powder, salt, combine everything, and simmer for the capsicum to get cooked. This takes about 5 to 7 mins of stirring.
Ensure the capsicum is soft and well cooked, still firm.
Take the cooked rice in a wide bowl. Add the capsicum masala over it, fluff it well.
Then, add the ground spice powder, combine everything gently with a fork.
Ensure all the grains are well coated. Let the flavors steep in.
Serve with papad and raita. Mostly this is just fine with papad.
