Carrot Rice

Carrot Rice
Hi Friends,
I wanted to tell you one thing that now i can feel the arrival of   upcoming so many festivals in the air. I really love this feeling and phase. Evenings are bit cozy now. Markets are flooded with lighting, gifts, dhanush vaan(arrow and bow), talwaar (sword), masks of Rama, ravana and hanumaan ji and lots of other things. Next three months are for total enjoyment. Dassehra, Diwali, Karwa chaouth and so many wedding functions are on the row. I am so excited. Now everyday i will feel like doing shopping for endless things. list is too long to mention. 
I like bright colors in everything weather it is a dish or clothes or home linen or accessories, means anything.  It is one of the reason for my love towards festival seasons which brings lots of color of lights, sweets, cloths, gifts and many more things. I am in love with the bright color dishes served in colorful or crystal clear serving bowls, i simply love them. I know here pictures of rice are disappointing  but actually they were looking fabulous while i served them with Soya chaap paneer masala(recipe coming soon). So friends here i am posting Carrot rice with blends well with the any side dish from Raita to any daal, Sabzi. Carrot gives a crunchy munchy taste in between soft texture of rice. I feel there is no need to add any spice as carrot will give you amazing flavor. I like it that way only. So use follow your imagination and taste. Here is the recipe.

Boiled Rice - 1 & 1/2 cup
Caroot - 1 cup (chopped in small cubes)
Oil- 1 tbsp


Gather your ingredients

Take 1 tbsp oil in a pan

Add chopped Carrot

Add boiled rice and mix well

Keep mixing for few seconds switch off the gas and keep covered for few seconds

 uncover and serve

I served it with Soya Chaap Paneer Masala

  1. If you need real crunchy taste of carrots the Don't add them while boiling rice.
