Carrot rice

Carrot rice, this family fav. variety rice is easy to make.And you can grind and store the powdered masala in large quantity.I use the same masala for mango rice as well.


Carrot - 1 cup (grated)
Rice - 1 cup ( boiled)
Oil - 2tsp
Mustard seeds - 1tsp
Urad dal-1/2tsp
Jeera - 1tsp
Green chilly - 1 (chopped)
Turmeric powder - 1/2tsp
Salt - as needed

Fry and grind

Red chillies - 5
Coriander seeds - 2tsp
Peanuts - 2tbsp


Cook 1 cup of rice separately.In a pan heat oil and fry mustard seeds, urad dal,jeera and finally add green chilly.Now add the grated carrot, turmeric powder and salt.Saute well till carrot is cooked well.Finally add the powdered masala and fry for another 3 min.s.You can adjust the amount of powdered masala according to your spice level.Add this carrot mixture into the cooked rice and mix well using a fork and careful not to mash up the rice.Garnish with coriander leaves.Serve it hot with any pickle or chutney.
