poriyals are so easy and quick to prepare that you can easily make them as a quick lunch option or for tiffin-box. any poriyal recipe can be served with chapatis. they also go well as a side dish with a main course of dal, sambar or rasam.

i make poriyals pretty regularly as its easy to prepare and does not take much time. moreover i always have fresh coconut stored in the freezer. so its kind of easy.

since i make poriyals often, i have shared some of them already on website:

  2. cabbage poriyal
  3. vendakkai poriyal
  4. beans poriyal
  5. kovakkai poriyal
  6. avarakkai poriyal

to make carrot poriyal, you can either finely chop or grate the veggies. in this carrot poriyal recipe, i have finely chopped the carrots, but you can even grate them. if using grated carrots, then do remember to add less water and the cooking time will also reduce.
