Carrot Thogayal

Thank you Sailu of sailus kitchen for this dish. I used her recipe but modified it to suit our taste. Here is the original dish.

2-3 cups grated carrot
3/4 cup chopped cilantro
2 tbsp split broken urad dhal
1 tbsp Channa dhal
1 tsp cumin seeds
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
1-2 dry red chillies
1-2 green chillies
1 tbsp grated jaggery or brown sugar
1 tsp oil
salt to taste
juice of 1/2 lemon

1. Fry urad dhal, channa dhal, red chillies, cumin seeds mustard seeds in a tsp of oil. Keep it aside to cool. Then grind the dhal mixture to a smooth powder.
2. In the same pan spray a little bit of oil and fry the carrots with green chillies.
3. Fry the cilantro leaves until the raw smell goes away. Takes a couple of minutes.
4. Add the carrot and cilantro leaves and grind with the dhal mixture.
5. Add lime juice in the end. This gives it a slight tangy taste.

Tastes great with Dosi or idli
