Carrot Poriyal

Carrot poriyal, typical south indian bowl of veggie, the flavours aromas blended here to make a great side dish with pretty carrots.. when ever i was back from the vegetable shop, for sure can find some carrots in it.. i love them coz of the bright orange color..

also for the sweet taste.. in my school days i love carrots and beetroots because of it color, stuffing this thooran, over the hot steamed rice will change the rice color into pretty red or orange.. Recently i found this preparation in google, that day when i need a spicy side dish, i tried out this poriyal, but i guess the same procedure can apply for beetroot, french beans, cabbage too.. This is my “Day 31 of B365″
