2. Soak the basmati rice for about 30 mins. Add some salt and cook the rice with one and half water. Once the rice is cooked, cool the rice. Transfer the cooked white rice into big bowl(basin) and sprinkle one or 2 spoons of oil so the rice won't be sticky.

3. Take a non-stick pan, pour 4 tbsp of oil in it. Add the mustard seeds. Once it starts cracking, add jeera. Once jeera gets into brown color, add the onion and curry leaves.

4. Once the onion gets into soft, add the bell pepper. Cook it for a minute and add some salt. No need of adding more salt as we already added some salt in the rice.

5. Now add 3 tbsp of masala powder in the pan. Mix well and add the cooked rice & coriander leaves. Mix it gently. Now the bell pepper rice is ready to be served. The masala powder will give nice smell to the rice.
