Carrot and Pea Pilaf is a delicious low-fat rice that helps you get a few veggies in your diet. Yup! Just like that!
As I mentioned the other day, the only way Mom could make me eat my veggies was by making a veg fried rice. She had so many options available – sometimes by incorporating cabbage and Carrot, other times by making a mini version of veg Biriyani by adding cauliflower, Carrot, Peas, and potatoes. Yup. Carrot and Peas were two things which I had without any objection.
Carrot and Pea Pilaf is another easy to prepare dish. It is one of my go to recipes whenever I crave for a change from the regular Steamed rice. Of course, Jeera Rice is my saviour. But something hatke? Then this is the one.
Fresh green Peas and carrots are available plentiful during winters and I’m trying different ways to include them in our diets. Prepare the Carrot and Pea Pilaf at home when you’ve guests or when your kid craves for something different in her lunchbox.
How to make Carrot and Pea Pilaf at Home
Oh, I’m not lying when I say it is easy to make. Cook rice with a little salt. You can use any rice of your choice. Heat oil in a pan and sauté finely sliced onions along with Cumin, cloves, bay leaves and cinnamon sticks. Add fresh peas and finely chopped carrots. Mix well. Cover and cook for about 7mins. Add a teaspoon of garam masala powder and salt. Mix and add to the cooked rice. Mix well and serve hot!
