Carrot Rice


I still remember my schooldays and mostly the lunch break time. We used to eagerly wait to see whats in our friend's tiffin box. Out of all sorts of food I have tasted from my friends/gangs dabbas, my all time favorite had been carrot rice, which one of my friend used to bring. Whenever I asked for the recipe both she and her mother used to keep mum. I still wonder why? So, one day I decided to try it out on my own. Now, the version I have here might not be the replica of my friends mom's carrot rice but it surely taste good. These days whenever I am at home alone and lazy to prepare a whole meal I go for something like this- quick and yummy!!
Ingredients:
  • 1 cup - Rice, cooked and drained
  • 2 tbsp - Ghee
  • 1 tsp - Fennel or Saunf
  • 1 - Onion, thinly sliced
  • 3 No - Big carrots, peeled and grated
  • 1 tsp - Red chilly powder
  • Salt to taste
  • 1/4 cup - Coriander leaves, chopped

Method:

  • Heat a kadhai with the ghee. Splutter the saunf and saute the onions till transparent
  • Add the carrot and saute till cooked. Add in the chilly powder and salt. Saute
  • Add the cooked rice and mix well till the moisture in the rice is completely gone.
  • Garnish it with the chopped coriander leaves.
  • You may serve it hot with anything like aachar, curd, pappad or have it just like that.

It might smell fresh and taste better if corriander leaves is added on top only at the end.... cooked corriander leaves can taste bitter at times...):-
