Number of Servings: 5

Ingredients

    8 to 10 baby carrots
    1.5 cups rice (any variety-I prefer basmati)
    1/4 cup onions diced
    1 tbsp ground tumeric
    1.5 tbsp pilau masala seasoning
    2 tbsp olive oil

Tips

You can make pilau with other veggies as well such as potatoes,peas, soybeans, just precook them a little before you add them in with the rice.


Directions

Add olive oil to a pan with onions. Heat until translucent. Add washed rice, chopped carrots, pilau seasoning and tumeric. Coat (this occurs naturally as the olive oil allows spices to bond with the rice) rice mixture with tumeric and pilau masala seasoning(you can find this in an Indian market) and cook for about 4 mins, stir frequently. Add 2 1/4 cups water. Cover and heat on low. Serve when rice is done. (sorry, unsure how long it takes, I usually eyeball it). Add salt to taste.

Serving Size: Should make about 5 cups

Number of Servings: 5
