Carrot Mosaranna(Yogurt Rice)

It is really hard to come up with new innovative and healthy ideas for packing lunch everyday. Usually, I have some leftover rice. Takes less than 15 minutes to prepare this dish. Packed with lots of carrot, it is tasty and very healthy as well.


* 2 cups cooked rice
* 2 cups yoghurt
* 3 carrots finely grated
* 1 tsp cream
* 1 cup fresh milk
* 1 tsp ghee or oil
* 1/2 tsp mustard seeds
* 1/4 tsp asafotedia or hing
* 3 cashew nuts
* 2 green chillies finely chopped
* 1 tsp finely cut fresh ginger or even grated
* Fresh coriander leaves, finely chopped
* Fresh curry leaves – 5 or 6 leaves
* salt to taste


In a small wok, heat the ghee or oil, splutter the mustard seeds, add asafotedia, cashew nuts, green chillies, curry leaves and ginger. Fry well.

Add the yoghurt, cream, milk and salt to the rice. Pour the fried contents from the wok into the rice and mix well.

Now add the finely grated carrots and mix well.
Garnish with finely cut coriander leaves before serving.
