Carrot stir fry is a simple and easy recipe which can be prepared by anyone in no time. Carrots are chopped into tiny pieces and one tbsp of toor dal is added. Chopped carrots + toor dal are steamed in a pressure cooker along with rice to save energy and gas. Tempering is done with tempering ingredients. Steamed carrot pieces are sautéed in tempering adding required amount of salt and curry powder too to enhance the taste. Here I present delicious carrot stir fry to relish any day.
