wow..capsicum fried rice is great..in india i used to regularly have jeera rice, fried rice etc. but never heard about capsicum fried rice. but here in U.S. it is very hard to find ingredients to make recipes. one of my indian friend introduced me to a great resource where i can find all the ingredients from all over the world.
