CARROT STIR-FRY


This is a very simple sabzi using very basic ingredients and  can be made in a jiffy. Same recipe can be followed for various vegetables like cauliflower, beans, capsicums, potatoes .. etc etc.....
It is also a good accompaniment with grilled meats.

Ingredients:
Carrots .... 2
Mustard seeds .. 1 tsp
Green chillies ... 2 - 3
Garlic ......... 1 tsp (crushed)
Turmeric powder .. 1/4 tsp
Besan / gram flour .. 1 tbsp (dry roasted)
Salt ...... to taste
Oil ..... 2-3 tbsps



Method:
1. Peel and cut the carrots into 1 inch long strips.
2. Heat oil in a pan and add the mustard seeds.
3. When they crackle, add the green chillies, garlic and carrots.
4. Add the salt and turmeric powder and saute.
5. Sprinkle little water for the carrots to cook. (as much as needed)
6. Stir in the dry roasted besan and mix well. Simmer for half a minute.

Tip: Since this vegetable has no spice powders you can increase the chillies if you like it hot.

  1. I am always in search of dishes that can be cooked in a jiffy and am excited to see this carrot recipe. The lovely flavors are great and of course, I need to add some chilies for the spiciness we must have with our food.
