Carrot Rice

This is a simple receipe for making Carrot Rice. The ingredients are as follows: 1 cup Basmati Rice(or regular sonamasuri rice) Soak it in water for 5 minutes, 1 Big Carrot - chop it, grind it and get juice out of it, 2 tbsp oil, 1tsp unsalted butter, salt to taste, Mustard seeds, urid dal, 1 green chilli, 5 cashews, 5 shredded almonds, pinch of asafoetida, turmeric powder, 1 finely chopped onion, Coriander leaves, curry leaves.

It needs a masala Powder which we can make it at home and keep the excess for some other variety rice. The ingredients for masala powder are:
  1. 1 cinnamon stick
  2. 2 cloves
  3. 1 bay leaf
  4. 1 cardamom
  5. 1 tbsp channa dal
  6. 1tbsp urid dal
  7. 3 red chillies
  8. 2 tbsp coriander seeds
Fry these ingredient in a pan with a drop of oil and grind it. Keep it aside. In a pressure cooker pre-heat the oil and butter. Season the mustard seeds, urid dal, cashews, almonds, green chillies and finely chopped onion to golden brown. Now add the Rice (drain it after 5 mts of soaking), carrot juice in 1:2 ratio(1rice:2juice), 2 tsp masala powder, turmeric powder, asafoetida and salt. Pressure cook this upto 2 whistles. Before serving garnish it with Coriander leaves. Raita can be used as side dish for this Rice. Try this receipe and lemme know your comments.
