A delightful Turkish dish served chilled just like a salad that's very healthy and full of fiber.
||Chop leeks in 3-4 cm chunks. Slice carrots. Chop onions. Sprinkle 1 teaspoonful of sugar.
||Fry onions and carrots together. Once tender, add leeks and rice. Close the lid, and turn down to medium heat.
||Boil some water on the kettle. Juice up a lemon/lime and add it to the leeks. Add salt.
||Turn it over couple of times before adding 1-1 1/2 cup of boiling water. Put the lid on and lower the heat down.
||Cook it this way for about half an hour or when the carrots are tender.
||Although it can be eaten as a warm dish, it is meant to be eaten like a salad. Chilled in the fridge for a couple of hours and served.
