Carrot Chutney - How to make tasty Carrot Chutney for idli, dosa and chapathi
I sometimes feel bored of that regular coconut chutney but a bit hesitant to do experiments with chutneys, since at my house the people are so used to the coconut chutney . Eventhough some variations are accepted with chillies (either red or green), they never give a try for these kinds. But surprisingly this chutney was a hit. This chutney will definitely be a hit at your home too due to its vibrant colour and taste. Your children are gonna love it for sure. Make sure you cook the carrots perfectly soft and do not overcook as it may lose its nutritional values and it may not give you that exact colour. You can try other variations of these chutneys by substituting with different veggies. You can also use this chutney as a sandwich spread for your kids and top it with grated paneer or any sauted veggies.
