Posting the recipe for very easy and quick rice which is common for my daughter's lunch box. I always find a way to feed the carrot to my children. Let it be in soup, salad, thalipeeth, wheat dosa, rice or sambhar. Luckily my both daughters like to have the carrot like rabbits. Just wash and clean it and give them while they are playing. Carrots are always in my fridge.
A very common recipe, may be,you will get it in most of the blogs. Here is my share too...
Rice - 1 cup
Carrot - 1 big or 2 medium, cleaned, peeled and cut into thick circles.
Onion - 1 big, cleaned and chopped lengthwise
Salt to taste
Warm water to cover the rice
Lemon juice - 1 tbsp
For masala powder:
Cinnamon - small piece
White pepper - 4 to6
Cloves - 3
Cardamom - 1
Bay leaf - 1 small
Take all the ingredients from masala powder, crush it to make coarse powder
Oil - 1 tbsp
Wash the rice and drain it. Keep it aside for 10 to 15 minutes.
Heat oil in a cooker or open pan.
Add chopped onions and fry till they change the color. Add the masala powder. Fry for a minute.
Add the carrot pieces, salt and fry for one more minute.
Now add the rice and fry till the rice gets mixed with the masala and the color will be slightly changed.
If using cooker,
Add the warm water till the rice is covered. Give just one whistle. Let it cool. Add lime juice. Mix well and serve hot or pack for the lunch box.
If using open pan
Add warm water according to the rice. Water quantity varies with each rice quality. Usually I take 1:2 rice:water first. And after sometime, I will check the rice and adjust the water.
Once its cooked, add lime juice.
Carrot rice is ready!
