Carrot tofu rice/pepper flavor carrot rice with soya milk cheese/How to make simple firm tofu rice/ vegan rice recipes/Step by step pictures

Carrot rice is familiar to every one which you people makes often with left rice rice.Here I used tofu along with grated carrot and combination of both main ingredients matched perfectly.You can try this like a pulav with chopped carrot instead of grating.....Tofu is a soya milk cheese with less in calories and vegans use it mostly when compare with others..This is a very healthy rice which goes in lunch and also for lunch box.If you want you can replace tofu with paneer,but it`s heavy in calories again...I like to try varieties with rice instead of taking white rice and you know MLH shared so many rice recipes too.as you all know carrot is a very good vegetable which is loaded with vitamins and when it cooks it gives a lovely aroma too. Try this carrot tofu rice and serve with any curry and raita or curd. Now,please take a look.
