Coconut Carrot and Peas Rice

I am a Big fan of Mixed Rices, nothing comes handy like these on a busy morning, where you sit and break your head on the lunch menu. Most of my Rice Recipes, will be Quick to make, mixed rice recipes, not that i dont prefer Slow-Cooking, one-pot meal recipes, but when it comes to time-saving, then definitely the former it is!!!!

Wishing you all a Very Happy Independence Day!!! Jai Hind!!!
