Sprouted Chick Peas and Carrot Pulav

Another pulav from my kitchen.I love to make pulav and parathas...b'coz i can stuff vegetables in that so that my family eat and they love it.Its easy for me to make as this doesn't need any side dish of choice.A simple raita is enough.

This time i tried with sprouted channa which i soaked and sprouted a day back.So here is what i made.

Basmati Rice : 1 cup(soaked in water for 15mins and drained)
Sprouted Chick Peas : 1 cup(sprouted and cooked in presure cooker upto 2 whistle)
Carrot : 1/2 cup(chop into round thin circle)
