  3. I love the capsicum infused flavours in the rice, I make this in the microwave, comes out really well!

  4. So easy to make & delicious, thanks for sharing such a simple delicacy


  5. amazing.. with left over rice so many dishes to make

  6. Nice. I make it a little differently without frying the capsicum and adding it while rice is being cooked, so the flavours are different. And this is an excellent way of using leftover rice

  7. We too have fried rice and yeh, the leftover cooked white rice is a great way to be reused. Never tried fried rice with capsicum but this looks good. The next round of fried rice at home will be your recipe to be tried out.

  8. like the capsicum flavor.. delicious..
