carrot rice from dilse :P

Carrot rice ,i had first tasted at my friends place few days ago,since then i was planning to make but somehow  it just escaped through my mind and suddenly when i was going through divya's dilse blog,again i saw this rice variety in her recipe list and was excited as this was a better version with ginger -garlic flavour in it,i thought i should give it a try this time and  made for our dinner,the best thing about this rice is ,its very simple and easy to make yet very healthy , beautiful colour and was kinda very fresh,i thank her for this delicious and wonderful recipe.I made mirchi ka salan with this rice and so was short of green chillies hence i added little red chiili pwd and garam masala to balance the spicyness init,rest all the ingredients are same,also this rice can directly made in pressure cooker as divya had made this rice in the same but i cooked the rice seperately as i usually cook rice with extra water and then straining and using it so that we dont consume extra carbohydrates  :P,this is my entry for this month's tried and tasted event  hosted by champa of verastile kitchen started by zlamushka.

ingredients :
2 cups basmati rice
1 cup grated/shredded carrot
1 medium size onion chopped
1 tsp red chilli pwd
1 tsp garam masala
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 tbsp ginger garlic paste
salt to taste
2 tbs oil
cilantro for garnishing
method :
Wash and cook rice seperately ,heat oil,add cumin seeds,let it splutter,add ginger-garlic paste,saute for a while,add chopped onions and fry till transparent.Add grated carrots,chilli pwd,garam masala,salt and fry till carrots are tender and cooked.Mix in the rice and gently stir with the paddle or a fork  so that the carrots are evenly spread with the rice,garnish with cilantro and serve hot.
