Carrot Pulav

Easy-to-make recipes never fail to catch my attention on food blogs: so I thought, why not share one here too?! The pulav is seasoned with whole spices and grated carrots, giving it a simple, yet excellent taste. This is a quick, healthy and easy-to-make rice preparation for those with less time on hand. I served it with cauliflower-pepper fry, raita, papad, pickle and Love!
