This is an easy rice dish that I have seen in many blogs. But most of them use chana dal in it. Since I was feeling plain lazy to soak, grind and all the rest of it, I made a simpler version. It came out quite tasty but next time I think I will try it with the dal and other masala in it. Since carrots add a nice sweetness to the rice dish so I didn’t feel a need to add onions to the carrot rice, but feel free to do so if you wish.
Cooked rice – 3 cups
Grated carrots – 1
Green chillies – 3, slit lengthwise
Ginger garlic paste – 1 tsp
Curry masala or garam masala – 1 tsp
Turmeric – a pinch
Salt – to taste
Oil – 2 tsp
How I Made It:
1. Heat oil and saute carrots and green chillies in turmeric till the carrots become limp (for lack of a better word)
2. Now add the ginger garlic paste, curry masala and salt and fry for a minute or two.
3. Mix in rice and leave on for another 2 minutes.
Serve warm with raita, papad and pickles.See how simple it is? 🙂
