Carrot Stir Fry / Carrot Thoran

  2. Coconut - 1 cup(grated)
  3. Chilly powder - 1 tbspn
  4. Turmeric powder - 1/4 tspn
  5. Cumin seeds - 1/2 tspn
  6. Coconut oil - 1 tbspn
  7. Whole red chilly - 2 No:s

  9. Mustard seeds
  10. Salt

How to make
Take a kadai .Pour coconut oil and add whole red chilly,splutter mustard seeds,curry leaves . Fry for few seconds. Add chopped carrot. (The carrots are evenly chopped as I did it in my food processor.)

Saute for 2-3 minutes. Cover and cook well in low flame. Give it a stir once in between otherwise it will stick to the bottom of the kadai. Crush the 4-7 ingredients either using a mixer or by hand. When the carrot is well cooked add salt and saute for 1 minute and then add the crushed coconut mix. Cover the kadai and cook for 3-4 minutes so that the raw taste of the powders leave.
Serve with rice.

  1. That looks good. Based on the images on this blog, the carrots looks like a fries. I think this would be perfect for my kids as their snacks. I will make this up tomorrow. Thanks for sharing!
