Carrot Chutney

I find carrot chutney a delicious & healthy alternate to our regular coconut or onion chutney. Since our daily screen time is getting increased nowadays, it is a good idea to include as much carrots as possible in our diet to protect our vision.  Carrot chutney may be served with spongy uthappam or crispy dosa.

Cooking Method:

  • Peel carrot & chop it roughly.
  • Heat a pan with oil.
  • Add red chillies & chopped carrot.
  • When chillies are roasted, remove them from pan and keep aside.
  • Add tamarind and saute for 2 min and leave aside till it reaches room temperature.
  • First grind red chillies into powder and then add tamarind & sauteed carrot into the jar.
  • Add 3 tbsp of water & salt and grind into a fine paste.
  • Transfer chutney to serving dish and garnish with tempering.


Please Note:
This chutney is prepared spicier as it is intended to serve with spongy dosa . If you want to make it less spicy, you can reduce 1 or 2 chillies or you can add a teaspoon of grated coconut.
If you add coconut & carrot in equal portions, you will get a vibrant yellow chutney liked specially by kids.
