Well, this Grated Carrot Curry is midway between a salad and a curry. I like it for its simplicity and the fact that it is so very easy to make. For me easy-to-make is a must on weekdays, as I often have to cook and leave for work!
I also love this curry because it is very light on the stomach and so is ideal on a hot summer day when you don’t want to eat too much or then when you are on a diet! 🙂
I have this Carrot Turumu Talimpu with rotis or just by itself as a salad.

Turn the heat to low and cook covered for 3 to 5 minutes.

- Do not over cook the carrot. All you need is for the carrot to just soften a touch.
- This curry has a crunch to it.
