  1. Wash rice and cook it in the proportion 1 : 2 / 2.5 ie 1 glass rice , 2 glass water.The cooked rice grains should be separate,not mushy.Once cooked, spread the cooked rice on a wide plate.This will make the grains separate further & also helps to cool quickly.It has to be cooled properly before using.
  2. Grate carrots . Keep aside .
  3. Roughly crush elaichi , cinnamon and cloves . Keep aside .
  4. In a kadai / pan heat oil . Once its hot add cumin seeds, crushed whole spices ( elaichi + cinnamon and cloves) , bay leaf and cashew .

  6. Next add grated carrots and peas . Sprinkle little salt and saute for 3-4 mins .

Recipe Notes
  • Don’t make the rice mushy . It will spoil the taste. Add few drops of ghee / oil and few drops of lemon while making rice for pulao . This will help the rice grains to remain separate .
  • Addition of onions n peas is purely optional . i sometimes add and at times don’t.
  • Since i usually make carrot methi rice for lunch box , i make it mild .. don’t add much masala . Thats why have mentioned garam masala as optional
