A simple carrot curry to make at home and eat with rice and chapathi.

  • Carrots - 6 
  • Onions - 1
  • Green Chillies - 2 (use to your convenience)
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil - 2 Tbsp (use to your convenience)
  • Coriander leaves
  • Thalimpu 1/2 tsp each: , Dried red chillies(2), urad dal (minapappu), bengal gram(sanagapappu), Mustard seeds(aavalu), Cumin seeds(jeera), Few Curry leaves
  • Garam masala - 1/2 tsp (optional)

  • Cut onions & green chillies to small pieces and keep aside
  • Similar to making of a carrot halwa, grate carrots into fine grain and keep aside
  • In a pan, pour oil and let it heat. Add Thalimpu seeds in the same order: Dried red chillies, urad dal, bengal gram and let it fry a bit. Then add mustard seeds and cumin seeds, curry leaves and let it chitapata for few seconds (Telugu translation: Yendu mirapa kaya, minappappu, sanagappu first veyinchi, tharuvatha, aavalu, jeelakarra veyali)
  • Add the green chillies and fry little
  • Add the chopped onions and fry till golden brown over medium flame
  • Optionally add little salt once you add chopped onions (it makes onions to fry faster and gives little salty taste to onions as well)
  • Add the grated carrot and close the lid and fry for sometime
  • Optionally add garam masala if you like
  • Optionally decorate with grated coriander leaves (tharigina kothimeera)
  • Carrot Curry is ready :) 
Carrot Curry goes well with chapathi or rice
