Here's wishing everyone a very Happy, Healthy & prosperous New Year -- 2015. Hope everyone had a fun filled joyous holiday.

34 serving

Total time

40 minutes




  • 2 ~ 3 Carrot
  • 2 tbsp Coconut
  • 2 chilies
  • 1 ginger
  • ricotta
  • to taste Salt
  • 1 tbsp cilantro
  • 1 tsp chana dal
  • 1 tsp Urad dal
  • 1 tsp Mustard seeds
  • 1 tsp Cumin seeds
  • 2 chilies
  • 8 ~ 10 Curry leaves


  1. Heat 2tsp oil in a saute pan; add the tempering ingredients and saute until dals turn golden and the seeds start to splutter. Add grated ginger and green chilies. Cook for 1 minute.
  2. Next add the chopped/ shredded carrot and turmeric. Mix well, cover and cook till carrot is tender -- for the shredded carrot, it took me about 8~10 minutes for the carrots to cook. It will take a little longer for chopped carrots.
  3. Season with salt. Finally add grated coconut and cook for another 2 minutes. Garnish with cilantro (if using) and serve with steamed rice. This curry goes well with rotis too.
