My Mom used to prepare this thuvaiyal/chutney for us to make us eat the carrot atleast in this form. she also makes coconut thuvaiyal, which is my favourite one. the taste of it will stay on my tongue even after eating.
Coming to this Carrot Thuvaiyal/chutney, i prefer this Carrot Thuvaiyal along with Rasam and Pappad. it used to be my simple and light meal. also i prepare this thuvaiyal and mix it with Rice and pack it for my hubby lunch box.
Coming to the Ingredients:
Mustard-half a tsp
Peel the outer skin of the carrot and Grate them and keep it aside .
Now in a kadai add 1 tsp of oil. fry urad dall till it becomes golden color. also fry the red chilli's.
Add the fried urad, chilli and tamarind to the grated carrot and grind it into a thick coarse paste by adding little water and required salt. Grind it coarsely.
Now add 1tsp of oil in the kadai, add mustard seeds..when it crackles, add curry leaves and add the grinded paste to it.
Fry it till the raw smell of the carrot leaves and the color changes to darker, when it starts sticking to kadai remove it from the flame.
It also Suits for Dosa's.
This can be mixed with rice...name it as carrot rice.. I just seasoned it with ghee fried cashews.
