Carrot Rice

My mother's recipe.

This is probably the most simple, yet fancy looking rice recipe you can ever make. If your kids are very fussy when it come to eating rice, try to make This new variety. At a time when I used to refuse to eat rice, my mother developed this rice recipe and I used to love it.

Ingredients :

Basmati rice

1 cup

1 tablespoon or teaspoon
Carrot (grated)

2 nos.
Boiling water

2 cups

To taste.

Preparation Method :

Wash and drain rice.
Melt in the butter.

Peal and grate the carrots.
Roast the carrot in the butter until it slowly begins to brown. Add salt. The Add the rice and sauté for 3-4 minutes on medium.

Then pour in the hot, gently give a swirl. Use boiling water straight from the kettle. Soon as you add the water the rice should bubble in the pot of hot water.

Allow to boil on medium-high heat.
Once the rice starts absorbing water and the rice plumps up and water level drops down, reduce the heat and cover the pot with a lid and allow the rice to simmer and cook slowly in the rest of the water.

Once the rice is 90% cooked, put the lid back on and after a minute turn of the flame and allow to sit for 5-10 minutes.
Open the pot and fluff up the rice to avoid it from sticking together.

Confused as to what to make for you little picky eater? What are you waiting for? I bet you have all the ingredients in your kitchen.. Why not make carrot rice for lunch or dinner for them! You will also like it.
