A nice change to the normal steamed or boiled rice. Delicious and very easy to prepare.

Ingredients – serves 5 to 6
4 cups uncooked rice
2 tsp cumin seeds
1 large carrot – grated
1 tbsp clarified butter (ghee)

Method – I used a rice cooker
Wash your rice to remove any starch and put in water as you would do to make normal boiled rice (rule of thumb – 1 ½ cups of water for every cup of uncooked rice).

Heat the ghee on medium heat in a small saucepan and fry the cumin until it is slightly brown. Add in the carrots and fry until the ghee has absorbed into the carrots. You don’t need to cook the carrots, just coat them with the ghee. Pour into your rice, place in rice cooker and turn on the switch. Easy peasy! Enjoy with curries.

Thanks for the comment Usha. The gajjar works well with spicy food. It tends to lessen the impact of the chilli and it makes the rice look pretty, if I may say so.
