Carrot Chutney Recipe

Hi Supermoms,

As you all know, I had made two different chutneys to serve along with idlies last week. I have already shared the 'Mint Cashew Chutney ' recipe with all of you. As promised, here is the second chutney recipe. 

We still get the juicy red carrots and I have been using them in my every day cooking in different ways. By the way, have you tried my Carrot Turmeric Rice Recipe

I am always tempted to make chutneys with all vegetables and fruits . Though I have earlier shared an Ayurvedic Homestyle  Carrot Chutney recipe ( it is more like a pachadi to be enjoyed with rice ), today's recipe is easier and is best when served along with tiffin. 

You can adjust the spice levels depending upon the sweetness of the carrots . Though I have used red carrots, you can use the carrot variety that is available in your region. Also, I have  used sesame oil to temper the chutney. You can also use coconut oil or oil of your choice. In fact, my daughter suggested that this would be a great dip for snacks. In that case, you can drizzle any cold pressed oil on top instead of tempering. 

You can adjust the consistency of the chutney depending upon the tiffin dish along with which you are going to serve this chutney. 

In short, a healthy and easy to make chutney recipe that you are going to love cooking and feeding.
