Carrot & Shallots Chutney

Its raining here and the temperature is very less when compared to the last year spring.Obviously most of our dinners are hot warming soup, sometimes my H need hot steaming idlis or crispy dosas for his dinner. As i told earlier,i do variety of chutneys to serve along with those spongy idlis or dosas. I do quite often chutneys with carrot, for a change this time i tried adding some shallots i picked from Indian grocery,for my surprise this chutney turned out super flavourful,yummy and delicious.Happy that everyone enjoyed having this chutney,even my H had two more idlis with this chutney,needless to say that this chutney is a keeper and i'll be doing quite often..Check out other food bloggers participating this incredible blogging marathon here.


1cup Carrots (grated)
10nos Shallots
5nos Garlic cloves
4nos Dry red chillies
1no Tamarind (blueberry size)
1/2tsp Mustard seeds
1/2tsp Urad dal
Few curry leaves
Salt
Oil

Heat enough oil in a kadai, fry the shallots,garlic cloves, dry red chillies one by one until they get well fried.

Now add the grated carrots to the same hot kadai and cook until they shrinks,finally add the tamarind piece, fry for few seconds and put off the stove..

Grind everything as a fine paste with enough water..meanwhile heat enough oil,let splutters the mustard seeds,urad dal,curry leaves, add this tempered spices to the chutney..

Serve with Idlis or Dosas..

Tu as raison mon amie, il fait tellement froid que nous avons besoin de retourner vers des recettes d'hiver. Ton chutney doit être bien délicieux et chaud au coeur et au corps.
