Very fragrant and tasty, dressed up with almonds and golden raisins.

"I often make carrot rice as stand alone fancy side dish. I usually don’t cover with curry or other toppings. This fragrant dish reminds me of Afghanistan pilafs."

Reak good and makes plenty. Almonds made it interesting and it was pretty much enjoyed. I couldnt find black cardamom pods though. Not bad to tell the truth.
