Soybean and Carrot Pilaf

Hello Friends! Today I am not in a mood to write much. Just want to say this a very healthy pilaf which incorporates the health benefits of both Soy and the carrots. I have explained in detail the health benefits of Soybean in Soybean and Rice adai. It’s a simple to make and flavourful rice.
Ingredients
2 carrots grated
1 large onion chopped
3/4 cup soaked  and parboiled Soybeans
2 cups basmati rice
2 garlic pods finely chopped
mix of ghee+oil for cooking
some fresh scraped coconut for garnish
1/4 tsp turmeric
1 tsp red chili pwd
Spices
2 tsp red chili flakes
2-3 star anise
4-5 cloves
3-4 bay leaves
1 cinnamon
2 black cardamom
1/4 tsp garam masala
Method
Soak the rice for 10 mins. Heat oil+ghee in a pressure cooker pan and add all spices except garam masala and red chili flakes. Now add the garlic followed by chili flakes. Immediately add onions and saute. Now add the Soybeans and saute for few mins. Add the grated carrots and mix. Add salt to taste, turmeric, chili pwd and rice. Mix and fry in oil for 2 mins . Now add the water and garam masala. Put the lid of the pressure cooker but do not put the weight. Cook the pilaf till the water is used and the rice is cooked completely. Serve hot with raita of your choice.

Soya beans are so good for us, specially women. Pilaf looks great, colorful with carrots.

Feel better. I think it's the gloomy weather if you are in US or Europe which is making us all little blue these days. Enjoy your weekend.

Dear SE, cooking in pressure cooker without weight helps the rice to cook fast at the same time you get 'dana dana khila khila' texture.

Dear Pari, Love ur Soyabean and Carror Pilaf. Great Presentation and Clicks. Easy ,healthy and delicious.By now when you visit my blog you would have know my love for pulavs/PIlaf..lol.

Thanks for ur kind words at my blog.I'm glad ur liked my profile pic. WEll we are from Jammu, but I was born and raised in Amchi Mumbai..so I'm a mumbaiya.Though I follow Marathi very well and used to speak so in my North INdian accent,but nowadays lost practice of speaking in Marathi.Yeah we did begin blogging at the same time..thanks for that observation.

Also I read ur and PJ's comment..I guess I know who you are talking abt..Its a big loss and for the last 2-3 days, i've been thinking about her and how she's coping with it. May God give her and her family the courage to move forward...
