Capsicum Fried Rice

This is yet another simple rice which is easy to match with any side dish also very quick to make. I have used  only yellow and green capsicum in this but you can use any combo or just one variety. Even though less spices are used this quite flavourful. I have used grinded paste of small onion, green chillies, ginger and garlic in this recipe. If you prefer you can just saute it. I prefer the grinded paste as it blends with rice nicely
