STIR FRIED CARROTS

Today I am going to share with you a healthy yummy very easy to make 'stir fried carrots'. No garlic or onion is used here. This colourful and delicious side dish I saw in my lovely friend Meena Bhatia's space, Homely Food. Though I made some modifications, but trust me, it is a very flavourful stir fry by using very less oil.

INGREDIENTS:
2 Large Thick Carrots (washed & peeled)
1/2 tsp Cumin Seeds
1/2 tsp Coriander Seeds
1 Dried Red Chilli
1 tbsp Gram Flour (besan)
1/4 tsp Turmeric Powder
8 Curry Leaves
1 tbsp Chopped Coriander Leaves
1 tsp Sugar (optional)
2 tsps Lemon Juice
1 tbsp Oil
Salt to taste

METHOD:
Cut carrots into 1" long slices (like almost the size of french fries). Keep it aside.

Dry roast cumin seeds, coriander seeds and dried red chilli for 2 minutes. Pound coarsely and set aside.

Heat oil in a wok or pan. Put mustard seed, stir till it splutters. Add curry leaves in it.

Now add carrots and stir well for 2-3 minutes.

Mix turmeric powder and salt in it. Fold well.

Lower the heat, cover and cook for 7-8 minutes, (stir in between twice) till carrots are tender.

Add pounded spices and sugar in it. Keep stirring for a minute, so that sugar and spices are incorporated well with the carrots.

Add gram flour in it. Keep mixing for another 2 minutes on medium heat.

Sprinkle coriander leaves and lemon juice on it. Fold well and remove from heat.

Serve hot with rotis or parathas.

  4. This sounds wonderful! I'm not partial to sweetened carrots, so would probably leave the sugar out. To me they are sweet enough by themselves. Will have to try this soon!
