Carrot Rice

I and my husband always enjoy the healthy food. So I usally prepare our’s lunch box at night and just take them to work the next day!! They are two reasons for it, I am not much comfortable with outside food and also not many food places around my office.

I plan ahead what to cook some simple food which can be done quickly and easily. And also my husband helps in chopping vegetables, I really need to appreciate him for this, which makes my cooking much easy and can be done in no time. For lunchboxes I usally carry chapati’s with simple curry or some rice items.

Carrot Rice is one of the simple dish which can be prepared in very less time and it tastes awesome !! Love it !! Carrots are highly nutritive, rich in protein, minerals and vitamins. I learnt this recipe from my mom !!
