Capsicum- Rava Bhath

Rava bhath is a popular breakfast made in most of the Indian houses known for its delicious taste and quick cooking process. This dish is very similar to the basis upma with an additional ingredient added .Normally a basic upma dish does not have any other veggies in it but as capsicum is added to this dish hence the name Capsicum bhath. Preparing a basic upma or capsicum bhath hardly takes about 10 minutes hence this is popularly cooked for breakfast or served during marriage functions or get-togethers as this dish is fast and easy to cook. Caspsicum  bhath made with Bombay rava or Bansi rava is served with either peanut chutney or coconut chutney,but i like to relish it plain.
Generally there are many versions of preparing the Capsicum Bhath. It can be made with rice, onions, tomatoes and other spices or with broken wheat cooked in the same way like basic upma combined with capsicum, tomato pieces, green chillies and curry leaves. This recipe of tomato bhath with semolina is prepared with upma rava or Bansi rava, green chillies, onions, tomato, garam masala (optional) and fresh curry  leaves and coriander leaves.
