Carrot Rice

I usually go for this carrot rice whenever i am so lazy to cook but still wants to eat some thing homemade. This is a kind of dish that satisfies your hunger with minimum amount of work.


Basmati Rice 1/2 cup
Grated carrot 1 cup (I usually grind it coarsely)
Small Onion 1 (chopped lengthwise)
Green Chilles 4 (chopped lengthwise)
Cumin seeds 1/2 tbsp
Cinnamon 1/2 inch
Cloves 2
Bay leaves 3
Cashew nuts few
Lime juice 2 tbsp
Oil 1 tbsp
Ghee 1 tbsp
Turmeric 1/4 tbsp


1. Soak rice for 1/2 hr. Then cook it with some salt and ghee (or oil) . This makes the rice not sticky. Keep aside the cooked rice until it is warm.

2. Heat oil in a pan. Add cinnamon, cloves, jeera and cashews. Then add onions, green chillies and turmeric. Once the onions are soft, add grated carrot and salt. Now fry it till the carrot is done. Mix it with the cooked rice along with the lime juice. Adjust salt and garnish with chopped cilantro.
