Carrot - Beans Rice


One more no fuss, quick rice idea for kids' lunchboxes. Substitute any other vegetables like capsicum / corn instead of beans. If desired, add cashews / peanuts for some crunch.

Ingredients: (2 servings)
1/2 cup Basmati rice
1/2 cup each - chopped beans and carrot
Salt & pepper to taste
2 - 3 Tbsp fresh, grated coconut
For tadka: 2 Tbsp oil / ghee, 1 tsp each - chana dal, urad dal, mustard seeds & cumin seeds, 1 red chili and few curry leaves

Preparation:
Cook rice adding a cup of water and let cool.
Cook beans and carrot in a microwave.

Method:
Heat oil / ghee in a pan. Add the tadka ingredients in the order mentioned. Add carrot, beans, coconut, salt and pepper. Give it a stir and add rice. Mix well and serve.

Vibrant and colorful rice Suma.
For the neem flower rasam I have not seen my MIL add jaggery and I assume it is supposed to be slightly bitter.
