Carrot Fry

Carrots, as known, is a very healthy vegetable which is rich in Vitamin A. I use them as much as possible in my regular dishes. Sometimes direct and grated, at times. I have seen many who doesn't like to have them as a curry .., because of the sweetness it gives to the curry.. For those.., frying them is the best way to have them happily in their meal.. Here I go with it.. It's a bit spicy because of which, must of the sweetness is suppressed.

3 long Carrots - chopped thick&long(french fries look)
2 tbsp dry Coconut powder
1 tbsp Garam Masala
1 tbsp Coriander powder
1 tbsp Red chilli powder
Coriander leaves
1 tsp each of Cumin,Mustard seeds, 2 tsp each of Black gram & Bengal gram (For Tempering)
Salt to taste

1. Heat 2 tbsp of oil in a pan. Splutter Cumin seeds, Mustard seeds, add Black gram and Bengal gram. Fry until golden brown.
2. Add carrot pieces, some salt and sprinkle handful of water. Stir them once and close the lid. Allow the carrot to cook on medium flame, mixing them once a while.
3. Once cooked soft, add coriander powder, garam masala, red chilli powder, dry coconut powder and mix well. Check once and adjust all the spices to taste.. also, the salt.
4. Top it with coriander leaves, mix well and serve hot with Rice.
