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.
