My aunt had made this when we visited them 2 months back and we were totally loving it.

This is very suitable for kids who love colours in their foods.
Take care to fluff the rice well with a fork and ensure they don’t stick together.
You can also replace carrot by beet root.
You can use the normal rice instead of basmati rice too.
Ensure not to stir many times after step 7. Otherwise the rice will turn mushy.
This is suitable for babies above 9 months of age. Avoid salt and replace basmati rice with usual rice if required.
You can serve with any raitha of your choice.
Adjust the spice level by adding or reducing the GGG paste.
You can also add other seasoning elements like aniseeds,cinnamon,baby leaf and clove.
