Carrot Curry with Roti for Lunch

I was trying to empty my refrigerator then, I stumbled upon the baby carrots and decided to make this curry..Carrot Curry With Rotis on Foodista
Its basically an everyday curry which we all make and no big list of ingredients in it, making it simple and most of all very healthy. Since, I had baby carrots I had to cut them carefully but normal carrots can be used  either by cutting or grating them. This is our lunch today :) with rotis.

Serves 2 people
Cooking and Preparation Time - 15-20 mins

Ingredients :

Carrots - grated or cut vertically - 1.5 cups
Onion - 1 small chopped
Few curry leaves
Coriander - 1/4 cup chopped
Turmeric Powder - 1/4 tbsp
Chilli powder - 1/2 tbsp
Lemon juice - 1/24 tbsp optional
For tempuring :
Oil - 2-3 tbsp
Urad Dal / Chana Dal - 1/2 tbsp
Mustard Seeds - 1/4 tbsp
Cumin Seeds - 1/4 tbsp
Method :
  1. Heat oil in a non stick pan add the chana or urad dal, mustard seeds, cumin seeds and let them splutter.
  2. Then add chopped onions, turmeric powder , chopped corainder and fry till the onions are translucent.
  3. Now add chilli powder , salt and fry.
  4. Then add carrots and saute well.
  5. Cook covered on low-medium heat for 10-15 mins until the carrots are cooked well.
  6. Add lemon juice if you like and garnish with coriander.
  7. Serve hot with rice or rotis.
Vishu's Tip : Try to microwave the carrots after cutting or grating if cooking in a non stick pan so that the curry is done faster without burning.
