Rice Pilaf with Carrot and Green Peas

Ruma Chak


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.

How to Make Rice Pilaf with Carrot and Green Peas


  • 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.
