Rice Recipe For Kids – Carrot Capsicum Pulao

The battle in the kitchen to dish out a delicious, healthy and sumptuous dish continues. A fussy eater who refuses to even look at carrots and capsicum, will not be able to say no to this yummy carrot-capsicum combination with rice. It’s easy, quick and most prep can be done at night.

What You Will Need:

  • 1 Cup – Cooked Rice (Preferrably long grained like Basmati)
  • ½ Cup – Grated Carrots (Orange Carrots work best for this)
  • ½ Cup – Very finely chopped onions
  • ¼ Cup – Very finely chopped Capsicum (I have used only Green here, but one could use all the 3 colours).
  • ¼ Cup – Shelled Green Peas
  • 2 tbsp – Olive Oil (or any other cooking oil, but tastes best in Olive oil)
  • Salt – To taste
  • A few sprigs of mint and corriander for garnish

Method of Preperation:

  • In a wok heat 2 tbsp of oil and add chopped oinions till translucent.
  • Once translucent, to this add green peas; cover and cook till the peas are par-done.
  • Now add grated carrot and saute for about a minute. To this add the chopped capsicum and saute for another minute.
  • Once the veggies are cooked to a crunchy texture, add cooked rice, season it with salt to taste and cook cover for a minute or two.
  • Finish it off with a garnish of freshly chopped mint and corriander.
  • Your delicious and colourful carrot-capsicum rice is ready to pack for tiffin.

Note: I have not used any chilli here, if your kids prefer spicy food, then you could either add finely chopped green chillies or sprinkle some red chilly powder / sambhar powder after adding the rice.
