Carrot - Garlic Chutney

Carrot as we all know is a treasure trove of nutrients.A lot of dishes can be made from this vegetable and here is a simple chutney to go with your breakfast.

I used:

Grated carrot - 1 cup
Grated coconut- 4 tablespoons
Ginger-1" piece
Garlic-5 large pods
Green chillies-4 [If carrots are not too sweet decrease the quantity of chillies]
Curry leaves - a few
Tamarind extract-1/2 a teaspoon
Oil-1 teaspoon
Salt to taste

  1. Heat oil in a pan and put in all the ingredients except salt and tamarind extract.
  2. Saute till the raw smell of the vegetables disappear.
  3. Cool and grind to a paste along with tamarind extract and salt to a paste.Add water little by little.This chutney should be a little thick in consistency.
Serve with Dosa / Idli / Adai
