Carrot Rice/Spicy Carrot Rice

                                                                              Carrot rice is not something that everyone makes often!! I do not make it often either, but when you need a variety or something for your lunch box this rice recipe comes out. My recipe for carrot rice is a little spicy version, but you can make it mild without grinding the masalas for a party with many dishes.If you are making it as a single dish might as well make it spicy and tasty and have it with raita and chips.

  • One big Onion
  • Two Carrots
  • Two Green chillies
  • One sprig of Curry leaves
  • Few Coriander leaves

  • Three Red Chillies
  • 1/2 tsp Khus khus
  • Two Cardamom
  • Four Cloves
  • One inch Cinnamon
  • One tsp Channa Dal
