This is a quick and healthy rice recipe. I generally like to prepare this sometimes for dinner to things simple. Any chicken curry or other dishes like chilli chicken (I will post this recipe sometimes later when I prepare it), some lentils (I will post lentil recipes later too) will go with this.

Ingredients

1 c
aromatic rice
1/2 c
diced carrot
1/2 c
green peas
1 tsp
ginger powder/paste/grated
1/2 tsp
cinnamon powder
1
bay leaf
2 Tbsp
butter
salt to taste
sufficient water to cook rice

Step-By-Step

1Wash and soak rice for 15 minutes and then drain water.

2combine all ingredients in a rice cooker (or in microwave proof bowl) and cook the pilaf as you would cook rice. Its extremely simple, delicious and healthy.

3Make sure to add just sufficient water (not more not less) so that the pilaf is dry and tender. I would add around 1 & 1/2 cups of water with 1 cup rice. However, you might go with the rice cooking instructions as this might vary.
