South Indian breakfast is uncomplete without chutneys, varieties of chutneys are served along with crispy dosas or softy fluffy idlis for breakfast or for dinner. Obviously South Indians makes many variety of chutneys to serve along with breakfast dishes especially for hot steaming idlis.If i serve idli for our dinner, my husband will definitely asks for atleast for two chutneys. Whenever i make Crispy dosas or idlis, i dont have any excuse to dish out atleast more than a chutney. If you check my space, you can see many varieties of chutneys, though i have many combination of chutney to give a try i still have few more to cook and post in my space. Needless to say that i couldnt stop myself to give a try to this incredible chutney with some fresh curry leaves. This flavourful chutney came out simply awesome.
When served along with dosas, everyone at home enjoyed thoroughly and asked for more dosas to have along with this aromatic,healthy chutney. As most of us knows, curry leaves are healthy,its advised to take them quite often in our meal. South Indians knows how healthy this green curryleaves are. Beta-carotene rich carrots are seriously very excellent for making this chutney. Am running first week of blogging marathon with 'Root Vegetable' as theme, obviously this healthy, aromatic and delicious fingerlicking goodness chutney goes for this week's theme. If you want to give a try to an easy chutney, dont forget to give try to this chutney.Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#61.
