Carrot Burji/Carrot/Puttu

Usually this is called as carrot puttu in south most part of tamilnadu. It goes well with kara kulambu and sambar.This is one of my favourites and i love to have it with plain rice itself.

  • Carrot - 1 cup
  • Onion - 1 medium sized
  • Coconut - 2 tbsp
  • Oil- 1 tsp
  • Mustard seeds-1/4 tsp
  • Curry leaves - few
Cooking steps
  1. Cut onions into small piece.
  2. Grate the carrot and coconut seperately.
  3. Coarsely grind coconut and cumin seeds.
  4. Mix carrot, onion, ground coconut and add salt.
  5. In a tawa, add oil and mustard seeds, curry leaves to temper and let it sputter.
  6. Add the carrot mixture and stir for a min.
  7. Add little water say 1/8cup approximately.
  8. Keep the tawa closed for 8 mins.
  9. After that open the lid and stir well till it is cooked fully.

My 2 cents
  • Usually i add carrot and onion together and fry together to retain the original colour of carrot in the  final food. You can fry onions seperately and add carrot also.
