This recipe is wonderful! I have made it twice and my husband made a variation of it once when we had no onion. He decided to add pineapple to the recipe which was okay, but nowhere near as good as the original recipe. The onion makes it great!

Excellent recipe! Easy, tasty and a great way to use up left over rice. Easy to make a large quantity for a large gathering. Thank you!

I had this this afternoon for lunch. I used 2 3/4 cups water, 3/4 tsp salt and 1/8 tsp pepper. I used about 1 medium-sized carrot. Instead of the butter, I used cooking oil. I liked this recipe except for the peanuts. What I found was that even a pinch of the powdered roasted peanuts imparted a very strong peanut taste to the rice(rather TOO strong for me and my parents). Hence, I omitted the peanuts. I find this rice perfect without them. The fact that it is low cal is simply great! Thanks, Anu!

Really good! I prepared this exactly as written and was impressed by how flavorful it was, especially considering how easy it is to prepare. I might use a little more ginger next time, but it was great as is, too. Thanks for posting this!

I have to tell you that I was a little skeptical about this recipe. I mean, Carrot Rice? But this recipe is just what you could possibly want it to be: tasty, healthy, and something different. I made my rice in the rice cooker instead of doing it on the stove, but that was the only change. Thank you for pepping up my meal!

Deservedly five stars and I agree that this is a great way to use up carrots. I actually used nearly an equal amount of finely shredded carrots to rice and the results were absolutely delicious. Thanks for posting, Anu! :)

Great tasting quick and easy dish to make (especially good when you have too many carrots and don't know what to do with them!)
