Rice is a very common item for most of us. Sometime I feel very boaring having same rice every day. So I have done some experiment with carrot and rice and found carrot fried rice. It turns very tasty and also added a lot nutritious value as well.
2 cup rice
2 onions chopped finely
1/2 carrot finely chopped
1 capsicum finely chopped
2 green chillis finely chopped
1 tbsp sauf (Misti jeera)
1/2 tbsp turmeric powder
1 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp ginger garlic paste
1 tbsp soya sauce
How to cook:
This recipe is a very healthy one as I have not added any masala. Just simple vegetables and little bit spices.
First of all wash the rice properly and cook for boil. Add chopped carrot also into the rice. You can add little bit of salt to that.
Now in a separate pan add refined oil and heat it. Add jeera to sit and wait for 1-2 min. Add chopped onions, chilis and capsicums to it. Add little salt as well. Add turmeric powder. Now fry them till they turn brown.
By the time the rice gets cooked. Be careful about the rice. It should not be overcooked. You can cook 80% as we will fry the rice later.
Drain the water from the rice and carrot mixture and keep them under fan to get cool down. Now take a look at the pan. Add ginger garlic paste to the fried onion and capsicum and fry for few more minute.
Now add rice to this fried mixture and mix them with the rice. Add little more salt and sugar to the rice. Stir regularly to mix the rice with all the fried vegetables. Finally add soya sauce to it and finish cooking.
Serve hot with any curry. Better to go for a thick gravy paneer or chicken item.
You can add lot of vegetables to this rice. My family liked it very much and due to less masala and oil, it actually increases taste and health value. Try this once, your family will like it.
