Carrot Rice

When it comes to variety  rice I do it very rarely. My kids doesn't like the rice to be dry, but they love the tomato rice. So I mixed tomato and added grated carrot which turned into aromatic and healthy pilaf.

You can use the same method and use any vegetable like beet, spinach.


Ingredients:

  • Basmati Rice - 1 cup
  • Carrot - 4
  • Onion - 1
  • Tomato - 1
  • Green chilly - 3
  • Ginger and garlic paste - 2 tsp
  • Cilantro - 1 tsp
  • Salt - to taste
To temper :
  • Oil - 2 tsp
  • Butter - 2 tsp
  • Cinnamon sticks - 1 tsp
  • Cloves - 4
  • Cashew - 2 tsp
  • Peanuts - 2 tsp


Method:

Soak the rice for 30 minutes. Wash and drain them. Cook the rice with water in the ratio 1:2 in a pan or pressure cooker(1:1.5). After the rice is cooked cool them in a wide plate.

Chop the onions and tomatoes finely. Grate the carrot and keep aside.

In a wide pan add oil and butter. Add peanuts and cashews and fry them. Add the slitted green chillies, onions, ginger - garlic paste. Fry until onions are translucent. Add tomatoes and cook for a minute. Then add grated carrot,salt and cook for 5 minutes covered.

Add the cooked rice and mix. Garnish with cilantro. Serve with tindora curry or raitha.
