  1. Capsicum is one of my most favorite veggies and I eat it every day, usually in a salad, but I also make capsicum rice, specially with the yellow, red and green combo. Just love it!

  2. I tried commenting thrice yesterday, but couldn’t get through! Love capsicum and use it every day in salads or as a cooked subzi. Especially love the colorful ones – we get yellow, red, orange and green. And the rice, just love it!
