carrot chutney recipe

whenever i prepare idlis or dosa, at times i make a veggie chutney with them if i am not making sambar. simply because its healthy and the veggie based chutney along with the idli and dosa does make up for a complete meal.

in south indian cuisine chutneys are made with many veggies like capsicum, cabbage, beetroot, sweet potato and various gourds etc. its a good way to use these left over veggies at home. sometimes you don’t know what to do with a beetroot or carrot. make a salad or chutney with them and have them with your meals. healthy as well as delicious.

this recipe of carrot chutney has coconut also added and tastes very good with soft dosas like poha dosa, neer dosa, benne dosa, idlis, adai and even medu vada. you can also serve with dal vada or masala vada.

you can store the left over carrot chutney in the refrigerator and it stays good for few days.

  1. Hi,

    Instead of coconut, what could I use in this chutney? (My husband doesn’t really like coconut)

    Thanks!

    • you can skip coconut and increase then amount of chana dal (bengal gram). so add 1 tablespoon chana dal instead of 1 teaspoon chana dal. the taste will change without coconut. hope this helps.

  3. Nice recipe dii.. I am a big fan of your recipes.. your app is a saviour for us..
    At home we make another chutney which is made by using carrots and raw mangoes.. the raw mangoes give a nice tangy taste and this chutney is usually made a little bit more spicy so that we can have it with idli, dosa etc.
