“If you want to try a healthy and tasty rice dish, this one’s for you. It’s easy and quick to prepare,” she said.
2tbsp – Oil or ghee
Carrots and beetroots (grated)
Spices namely turmeric, salt, cumin, mustard and asafoetida.
*First, steam the rice for 20 minutes. Once it’s ready, let it cool down for 10 minutes.
*Take a pan, add 2 tbsp of vegetable oil.
*Wait for two-three minutes until it’s hot, then add a pinch of asafoetida (hing), cumin and mustard seeds. You may also add curry leaves if you like.
*Then add the cooked rice in the pan along with the spices- turmeric, salt, red chilli powder or anything else you wanna add. Mix well and let it cook for five minutes. Switch off the stove and then add grated carrots, beetroots and coriander; and your healthy, tasty rice is ready.
You may also add other vegetables if you like.
Note: For those who have poor metabolism, using boiled vegetables is a better option than raw. Boil the vegetables before you add them in the rice or just let them steam for 20 minutes along with the rice. Either way is fine.
