In winters, we all are so dull minded that all we do with these juicy and bright carrots is to peel them off and make a salad out of it. I see these sweet and nutritious carrots along with the green juicy cucumber every day in my salad plate but these vegetables shouldn’t be limited to that. So either you like it as creamy, crunchy, caramelized or cooked — here we have shared 5 perfect and flavorful recipes that can be prepared using fresh carrots.

2. Kabuli Pulao

Kabuli Pulao (Afghani chickpea rice) originated from Kabul, Afghanistan but because there is a large number of Afghan refugees residing in Peshawar, the Afghanis shared their recipe with the Pukhtoons and since then, they have owned it. Kabuli Pulao is extremely delicious and yet it is an easy recipe to prepare.
