Capsicum Corn Rice

Capsicum Corn Rice sounds different but is a great combination. I tried first time with the instructions of my Father in law who is good cook. Thanks a lot.

This is very delicious and simple rice. Its a non spicy rice. I usually prepare non-spicy food for my in laws. So this was a treat to them. We do not use garlic at home you guys must have seen it in optional. This is the first dish using garlic in my kitchen.
