Carrot chutney

  I know sometimes it can be boring to try the same old side dishes for idly/ dosai. Carrot chutney can be a really good alternative.  I also figured that by making this chutney I can make my kids get their veggies in the diet.

Serves up to 3 people
Preparation time: 15 minutes


1 red onion                          
3 carrots
3-4 red chillies
1 tbsp of urad dhal
cherry-sized tamarind 
1/2 tsp of mustard
1/2 tbsp of sesame oil
salt as required


1. Heat 1 tsp of oil in the pan and add urad dhal to the pan. Roast the dhal till it turns golden brown. Transfer to a plate.
2.Add the chopped onion and red chillies to the pan, saute for 2 minutes and then add grated carrot to the pan. Saute well for another 2 minutes. 
3.Allow to cool and then grind  the sauteed ingredients with salt and tamarind together in to a smooth paste.
4.Carrot chutney is ready. Heat 1 tsp of oil and add the mustard. As it sputters, transfer the seasoning to the chutney.
