For the third of Blogging Marathon with the theme CARROT I cooked this spicy and delicious Carrot thuvaiyal.
Black gram dhal 1tbsp
Red chillies 4-5
Asafoetida a pinch
Tamarind a small marble size
Salt to taste
Grate the carrots and keep aside
Heat a pan with oil and add the black gram dhal , red chillies and asafoetida to it and saute till the dhal becomes a little brownish.Switch off the heat and let it cool
In the same pan , add the grated carrot and saute in a low flame till the raw smell goes away
Add this to the fried dhal mixture.
Add the tamarind and salt and grind the thuvaiyal into a smooth paste
Serve with hot rice and kootu
