Stir in ginger, carrots, and salt to taste. Reduce heat to low and cover to steam 5 minutes. Stir in cayenne pepper and peanuts. When rice is done, add it to skillet and stir gently to combine with other ingredients. Garnish with chopped cilantro.

Very, very good!! I didn't add peanuts, because I forgot them at the store, but it was still so good that now I think "Hmmm, what can I make to go with Carrot Rice?". Very easy too. I did chop...
