Mushroom & Bell Pepper Fried Rice, Capsicum Mushroom Fried Rice

For this week’s BM theme, Valli gave us links to a few Indian restaurant menu’s in different countries including Australia and the United States, as well as India. Our task is to reproduce any three dishes from one of the selected menu’s.

Every country in the world has their version of Chinese food and India is no different. Today’s recipe is from the Chinese section of the Puranmal restaurant menu. Called Capsicum Mushroom Rice on the menu, this is my version of reproducing it. Having just come back from Chinatown with drumstick mushrooms and other Chinese treats, I incorporated this mushroom in the dish, although it is not a commonly used mushroom in India, even in their Indo-Chinese cuisine. This is a simple rice dish that will make a great side dish to any meal.

Bell Pepper Mushroom Fried Rice

Serves 6

  • 1 tablespoon peanut oil
  • 1 chopped onion
  • 1/2 chopped green bell pepper
  • 1 chopped red bell pepper
  • 1 quartered and thinly sliced drumstick mushroom
  • 4 cups cooked rice
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 3 teaspoons green chilli sauce, or to taste
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • salt, to taste

Heat oil. Add onion and saute until golden. Add bell peppers and mushrooms. Cook for about 5 minutes until the mushrooms are cooked through.
Add rice, sesamme oil, chilli sauce, soy sauce and salt. Stir to combine until the rice is well coated.

  1. Mushroom and bell pepper fried rice looks very colourful and tasty. Easy to prepare and everyone love to have it. Loved both peanut and sesame oil flavours in fried rice.

    • yes I love the nutty flavor of peanut oil especially. Adds a whole other level of flavor profile to the dish. It is especially good for frying foods as it has a very high smoke point,

  2. That rice looks super yummy! I like the use of drumstick mushroom. I will try this recipe for sure!

    • Drumstick mushroom is one of my fave mushroom varieties for its hearty meaty texture. As I am not a portabello fan, it is my go to mushroom for a hearty meaty texture.

  3. Love stir fried mushroom rice. Adding bell pepper to it not only makes it more colorful but also more tastier. I love to have it on its own.

  4. Stir fried mushrooms look so flavorful and delicious. As I am not a big fan of mushrooms, I loved the addition of bell peppers in it. oh this must be so yumm!

    • I actually am not a big mushroom fan either. The only two I really like are the drumstick mushroom I used here and shitake’s. They have mild flavors. Some mushrooms, like portabellos in my opinion, taste like dirt. I don’t understand why so many people like portabello’s. Do you like them?

  5. Mushroom and bell pepper fried rice looks so delicious. I love indo Chinese . This fried rice is an absolute die for . Would love to try your version soon.

  6. Such an quick and easy recipe mir! We don’t eat mushroom often, so addition of bell peppers sounds yumm! I usually have a cup of leftover rice in my fridge, whcih turn into a mixed rice next day, i might as well try this version next time!!!

  7. fried rice is one of the best way to use up leftover rice. I always love this kind of easy peasy dishes. Yours is looking so tempting with the use of mushroom and bell peppers
