Sizzling Tastebuds

Roundup of HLI – Carrots

HLI (Healthy Lunchbox Ideas) is a series which has seen grow from strength to strength. Each month we experiment with dishes using one central ingredient that kids are not fond of, and try to make them more attractive, palatable & healthy. Hosted by my dearest blogger friends, we have had in the past 3 editions HLI Brocolli, HLI Paneer and the present round up of HLI Carrots. This month edition – HLI Dates – is now being hosted @ Aarthi’s space – check it out.

I am also on the look out for future hosts for this event post May 2012 as slots till then are booked out.

Today, I present the round up of HLI Carrots that was hosted at my space – Sizzling Tastebuds. Carrot rice seems to be a popular dish using carrots, with more than 5 – 6 varieties of Carrot Rice sent to this event. Enjoy these 20 healthy treats with Carrots.
