Carrot Rice

This is a super delicious rice recipe, quick & easy to make. You can offer a special meal to your family by adding some more effort to your normal plain rice. In another way, this is a good idea to use left over rice.
When I search for this recipe,I found many recipes. But I have done few changes to this recipe.(May be I have converted the recipe according to Sri Lankan style)

Here is the recipe.

Ingredients: (2 portions)

2 cup cooked rice (or cooked left over rice)
1 onion (sliced)
1 large size carrot
2-3  tsp Ghee/butter or any cooking oil
a small piece of cinnamon
2 nos cloves
a few sprigs curry leaves
Salt as per taste
1 tsp curry powder
3/4 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp chili powder
A pinch of turmeric powder
1 tbs ginger, garlic paste


Peel, wash & grate carrot
Heat oil in a pan.
When oil is hot, add ginger, garlic paste. When you feel the aroma, add sliced onion. Mix well
When the onion is becoming tender add curry leaves.
Then add grated carrot & mix well.
Sauté for few minutes.
Then add all the spices & mix well.

Add salt to this mix & taste for salt.
Then add cooked rice & mix well
Cook for few minutes mixing it well.
Adjust salt if need.

Serve hot

When I browse for blog posts,I found that there is a recipe round up at  Sizzling Tastebuds. And the theme is Healthy Lunch box ideas with carrot.So is this not good as a healthy lunch box idea? I thought of sharing this recipe as a submission of the above event.
