CARROT RICE



Often kids refuse to eat some vegetables like carrots and this is a nice way to make them eat. This dish is mildly spiced and perfect for kids lunch box. However if you like it spicier you can adjust accordingly.

Ingredients:
Cooked rice ... 1 cup (we can use the left-over rice too)
Grated carrot .. 2 tbsp
Turmeric powder ... 1/8tsp
Red chilli powder .. 1/8 tsp
Garam masala ........ 1/2 tsp
Salt .... to taste
Oil

For Tempering:
Cumin seeds .... 1/2 tsp
Mustard seeds ... 1/2 tsp
Urad dal / chana dal ... 1 tsp
Asafoetida ......... a pinch
Dry red chillies ... 1-2
Curry leaves ....... a sprig

Method:

1. In a pan heat a little oil. Add the tempering ingredients. When the seeds crackle, add the grated carrot.

2. Season with salt, turmeric powder, chilli powder and garam masala. Saute for a minute.
3. Add the cooked rice and mix well.
Serve hot.
