Carrot Rice Recipe

Carrot rice is a mildly spiced and colorful, yet a healthy rice recipe with the goodness of carrots.
Carrot Rice
Carrot rice is a simple Indian rice recipe that can be easily prepared and makes for a perfect kids lunch box recipe as well.

Carrots are a main source of Vitamin A and they must be included in our diet in any form. Making this rice is one delicious way of doing so.

I have prepared the carrots separately and just mixed the cooked rice. Alternatively, you can cook both together using pressure cooker. Addition of whole spices brings flavor to the rice. You can also use leftover rice in preparing carrot rice.

You can serve this carrot rice along with some dry sabzi or as it is just with raita and some papads.
