Oriental-Style Carrot Risotto With Raisins

READY IN: 1hr 45mins
Recipe by Mia in Germany

I came up with this after trying several variations of Indian carrot rice which I absolutely loved. Cooking time includes 1 hour resting time. The rice will be just warm when ready to serve. If you want it hot, gently reheat a little, but be careful not to burn it. Great with chicken and vegetables.

Yummy rice recipe....I did not use brown rice, but use arborio rice for risotto. Turned out perfectly, expect I had to heat it up to serve. I did add some salt to serve. Dish looks beautiful and is wonderful with fish or chicken. Thanks for sharing! Made for "for your consideration" game in yuku.
