Carrot Kura

Standard

Normally we make carrot kura at home. This is a simple and healthy vegetable, especially since we do not use too much oil in them.

Ingredients:
3 large carrots
1/2 fresh coconut, desiccated
1 tsp salt
a pinch of turmeric
1/2 tsp chilli powder

Tadka
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
1tsp urad dal
1 red chilli

Method:

  • Scrape the carrots and chop into very fine pieces
  • In a wok, heat the carrots, water to submerge the carrot pieces, salt and turmeric.
  • Place a lid on the wok, and cook till all water dries up.
  • Gently check if the carrot pieces are done. Be careful not the mash the pieces.
  • Once all water has dried up, add chilli powder and cook on open flame for 5 minutes.
  • Take off the gas, and prepare tadka.
  • Once the tadka starts popping, add to the vegetable, and put the vegetable back to cook for a couple of minutes. This will help the vegetable to absorb the minimal oil from the tadka.
  • Add the desiccated coconut and cook for 5 minutes or till the coconut dries and coats the carrot pieces.

Serve hot with rice or chapati.
