Carrot Rice

- 1 cup cooked basmathi rice
- 3 cups of shredded carrots
- 1 cup shelled edamame (or) green peas
- 1 small onion chopped
- 2-3 green chillies chopped
- 3 cloves
- 1" Cinnamon stick
- 1 tsp coriander seeds
- 1 tsp cumin seeds
- 4-5 peppercorns
- 1/4 teaspoon turmeric
- 1/4 teaspoon hing
- 1 cup roasted peanuts grounded coarsely
- 1 teaspoon chili powder

1. In a heavy pan fry coriander seeds, cumin seeds, peppercorns and cinnamon. Grind them to a fine powder.
2. In another vessel pour oil and put in the cloves. Once it is slightly brown add hing,green chillies and onions. Fry them till the onions become translucent.
3. Add the shredded carrots, ground powder, chili powder, salt, turmeric, edamame and cook till the carrots are tender
4. Now add the cooked basmathi rice and mix well. Finally add the ground peanuts and toss the rice around.

Serve it hot. This rice is very healthy. I also add sprouted green moong dhal in this dish.
