Carrot Thoran Rice – Simply Variety

ย  ย  It was a long chapati week for us. Chapati is Ayden’s favorite food, but I make them very rarely because he won’t eat anything else with chapati, just plain chapaties. And it’s hard to feed him some vegetables or non veg. So I gave him chapaties for few days and I have stopped chapati menu for now. This Carrot Thoran Rice is very delicious and especially kids will love this. It’s an easy recipe for lunch box, can prepare with leftover thoran. We had the rice with fish fry and raita, that’s just more than enough and perfect combo. Try my recipe and share with your loved once.
