Corn,Carrot & Chickpeas Rice

One pot meals are always welcome at our place,if i feel like lazy i'll go definitely and immediately to a quick one pot meal.Am starting again my third week of blogging marathon today and the theme is Kid's delight -Lunch box special. Fortunately i dont need to prepare lunch boxes for my kids as they come back home to have their lunch. Yep their schools are just 5-6minutes from our home by walk and they come everyday to have their lunch. In case if there is something urgent, they will eat in their school canteen or i'll wrap them a sandwich. So obviously i dont need to break my head for their lunch, eventhough as am a health nut i try to feed them with healthy stuffs.

For my today's post, i quickly cooked up this flavourful,easy breezy rice with grated carrots,sweet corns and chickpeas. As i told earlier, i always have cooked or already soaked chickpeas in my freezer,so that i can add this nutritious legumes in my cooking quite often whenever i feel like having them. Coming to this rice, i just added my kids favourite veggies and chickpeas and this rice tastes fabulous with fryums or hard boiled eggs.Check out the bloggers running this 24th edition of blogging marathon here.Sending to Carole's Food on Friday-Corn.


3cups Cooked rice
1cup Grated carrots
1/4cup Sweet corn kernels
3/4cup Cooked chickpeas
1tsp Cumin seeds
3nos Green chillies (slit opened)
1tsp Garam masala powder
1/2tsp Amchur powder
1/4tsp White pepper powder
1/2tsp Pav bhaji masala powder
Salt
Oil
Few curry leaves

Heat enough oil in a heavy bottomed pan, fry the cumin seeds, slit opened green chillies and curry leaves.

Add immediately the sweet corn kernels and cooked chickpeas,cook for few minutes.

Now add the grated carrot with garam masala powder,amchur powder, pav bhaji masala powder and salt, cook everything in simmer until the veggies gets well cooked.

Add now the already cooked rice to the cooking veggies, toss everything gently until the rice gets well coated with the masala.

Finally add the white pepper powder and give a stir.

Put off the stove and serve with your favourite side dish.
