Carrot and Corn Rice.

As usual, Its a Hectic Monday morning, making me tensed abt all the things like preparing a diff item for my hubby's lunch box, getting my daughter ready for her school and the most important thing, making her drink a glass of milk... . And today was a spl instruction to make something different for his tiffen dabba. So I started pondering my fridge and got hold of a tin of corn and few carrots, and then came the idea of Carrot and Corn rice.




And so here goes the recipe.

Ingredients :

Rice - 2 cups.

Carrots - 2 medium, cut into thin and medium pieces

Corn - 1/2 cup

Ginger - A small piece 

Cardamom ( Optional )  - 2 pods

Bay leaf - 2

Ghee - For frying

Jeera - 1 Tbslp.

Salt - To taste

Garam Masala (Optional) - 1 tblsp.


Method.

First wash and soak the rice for abt 15 - 20 mins. In a pan, heat ghee and add Jeera seeds. Once they splutter and the cut ginger and fry for abt a min. Now add the carrot and corn and fry for 2 mins. Then add the soaked rice, salt and Garam masala and ry for about 2 or 3 minutes. Then transfer the contents to a pressure cooker or rice cooker and add approximately 4 to 4.5 cups of water. If Pressure cooking, cook the rice till 1 or 2 whistles. I cooked in a rice cooker.

Serve Hot with cucumber raita or a side dish of ur choice.
