gajar matar pulao recipe in hindi - carrot peas pulao

This healthy nutritious carrot and peas pulao is rich and spicy veg recipe suits better for any special occasion. Green Peas is a winter season crop. Peas are rich in fibre, act as anti-oxidants, good source of folic acid which is good for expectant mothers as folic acid is a vital nutrient which prevents neural defects in new born babies. Carrots are rich source of Vitamin A, K, B6, Folate, Manganese, Thiamin, Niacin. They are good for eye sight, improves complexion, hemoglobin in blood etc.

This Recipe for Peas Pulav is a healthy dish for kids hence we can make this less spicy for them, you can pack this rice for their lunch box and Instead of dicing carrots to small cubes, I have grated them because some kids don't like to eat carrots.

If you dice the carrots to small pieces they will keep carrot pieces aside and eat just the rice. Whereas if you add grated carrot then they won't have any chance to omit carrot and will eat the whole rice.

Your kid is still not comfortable with carrots, try this simple peas pulao recipe without carrots.
I have also prepared Dum Aloo gravy recipe for peas pulav and it tasted really awesome, I will post it soon. Meanwhile you can check my Potato Kurma recipe to pair up with this rice. You can also serve it with any kind of raitas
