Capsicum Rice

I go gaga over capsicums. Or so they tell me, people in my family.
Boiled raw rice - 3 cups
Capsicum - 250 gms (Green/Red/Yellow Peppers)
Masala powder - 2 tbsp
Pearl Onions 100 gms
Coriander Leaves - a little
Curry Leaves - a little
Salt to taste
Oil for cooking
For the masala powder
Urad Dal - 1 tsp
Channa Dal - handful
Cumin Seeds - 1 tsp
Red Chilies - 7
Black Pepper - 1 tsp
Asafoetida - a pinch

Dry roast all the masala powder ingredients and powder coarsely.
Heat oil in a pan, add finely chopped peppers and cook till soft. Add pearl onions to it and saute well.
Add the masala powder, salt, coriander leaves and curry leaves. 
Mix rice with this and enjoy with cucumber/tomato raitha.
