Indian Veggie Rice
Recipe from Weelicious.
I basically increased the Weelicious recipe by using 2 potatoes, 2 carrots 1 large onion 2 garlic, 1.5 C of rice, 2.5 tsp of Curry 2 tsp salt and 1 C. peas.
I also added a pinch of ginger.
I wanted to use it as a meatless meal not just a side dish and while her suggestion that her recipe serves 4 is probably accurate for a side dish, I doubt it would feed my husband's appetite.
Mainly I thought that all of the ingredients are super kid friendly (and easy for my 1 year old to feed himself) so I was all for trying it. My 3 year old liked it a lot. My 1 year old liked it but it was messy with the yellow curry coloring. I think next time it would be better with some chicken breast mixed in and maybe a little cinnamon. Overall though it was filling and tasted good. :) It did take about 1 hour to cook all the way with the brown rice (not basmati brown as Weelicious suggests) but I started it early and just stirred it every 20 minutes so it wasn't very time consuming.
