Carrot Tomato Pulav

I don't like plain rice so if I get a chance to make some kind of different rice preparation I go for it. This dish is so easy and tasty and you can make it with leftover rice too. Just make sure rice is cold. This is perfect rice dish you can have it as  pulav or  with my Baghara Baigan too.

Ingredients :

1 cup raw rice
1 carrot grated
2 tomatoes chopped
1 bay leaf
1 small stick of cinnamon
2 big cardamom
1 small ginger chopped
1 small onion chopped
4-5 curry leaves
1 dry red chilies
few cashews
1/2 tsp. black pepper powder
1/2 cup tomato puree
lime juice as per taste
salt as per taste
chopped coriander leaves (optional)


Soak rice for half an hour in water. Take it out and keep it aside.
In a non stick pan, add bay leaf, cinnamon, cardamom and roast it without oil.
Add ginger, onion, tomato, carrot and salt. cook for 2-3 minutes.
Add 2 cups of water and mix it.
When its boiled add curry leaves, rice, cashews , black pepper powder, tomato puree and mix it slowly.
Add lime juice and cilantro and cover the lid and cook it on slow flame till its ready.

Serve it hot with raita or gravy dish.

To make it with leftover rice, just add 2 tsp oil and add whole spices and proceed further.
