Potato & Carrot Rice

Yesterday, SC informed me that we still have some carrots left in the fridge. I usually make potato & carrot soup with it, but I want to try something different. So I browsed my Indian cookbook: “Indian Rice and Breads” and found a recipe for potato rice. I modified it by adding shredded carrot :)
