Carrot Rice


Carrot rice is another flavorful one pot quick meal. This is a simple but delicious rice similar to the pulao. Carrot and rice was cooked together. You can also cook them separate , make the masala and finally blend like the fried rice. What attracted me to this rice is its simplicity and unique aroma.

Ingredients
Basmathi Rice-2 cup
Carrot grated- 1 1/2 cup
Water- 4 1/3 cup
Onion chopped- 1 medium
Green Chilly- 4
Ginger- 1 inch thick
Bay leaf- 1
Cinnamon- 1 inch thick
Clove- 2
Cardamon-2
Fennel Seeds- a pinch
Cashew nuts- 6-7
lemon juice - a few drops
salt to taste
Oil/ghee

Heat oil/ghee in a pressure pan and add in the whole garam masala and saute till a nice aroma comes and add cashew nuts and fry till golden brown. Add onions , green chilly,salt and ginger and saute till it becomes golden brown. Add in the grated carrot and stir fry. Add rice and allow the masalas and oil to get coated and finally add water and when it starts to boil close the lid. After the first whistle reduce the flame to medium and then switch off after three whistles. Using a fork make the rice fluffy and add in lemon juice. Serve warm with raitha and any spicy side dish
