Carrot Rice / Seasoned Carrot Rice – Lunch Box Ideas / Leftover Recipes


This is a simple rice preparation that needs only minutes to make..I means only few minutes..It can be made from start to finish in less than 15 mins and ofcourse you should have your rice cooked readily for this..You can use up left over rice from the previous batch too..
 

And if your kids are not eating any vegetables then this is the perfect recipe to sneak your carrots in..They will totally love it, because both of my sister loved it..I used ghee as a base for this, but you could use oil if you are in a diet.Ghee will give nice aroma to this..


Hope you like it and let me know what you think..Hope  you like it and let me know what you think..I am sending this recipe to BM Day 5 under the theme Seven Days of Rice…
