Halloween Carrot Rice - Pumpkin Shaped Carrot Rice

Worried about all the junk kids are eating this Halloween Season? Make a super healthy treat this halloween!

This recipe is just enough to serve 1 child as a full meal, but it is easily scalable to your needs. Aslo, I have used cumin and turmeric as seasoning as my little one loves his carrot rice like that. Feel free to use any seasoning or spices that you like. Design idea borrowed from here

Ingredients (Makes 4 lemon sized Pumpkins)

Carrot 1 big finely grated
Rice 1/2 cup (before cooking)
Black olives 3-4
Cumin 1/2 tsp
Turmeric Powder 1/4 tsp

Oil and salt to taste

Method of Preparation

1. Cook the rice with 1 cup of water till well cooked.

2. Heat a pan, add some oil, cumin seeds and turmeric powder.

3. When it sizzles, add the grated carrots and saute for a minute. You do not want to over cook the carrots. Otherwise you will lose the colour and texture.

4. Add the rice, salt and mix well.

5. While it is still a little hot, separate into 4 portions.

6. Dip your hand in some water, gather a portion and roll into a ball. Place on a plate. Repeat for the rest of the portions.

7. Cut the olives into small pieces in shapes of eyes, nose, mouth etc and stick it to the ball gently.

Serve a happy kid!
