You think if you’ve seen one thoran (a traditional Kerala vegetable stir fry with coconut and spices) recipe, you’ve seen it all, right? Well, that is true to a certain extent. But this one had to be blogged about, since I normally hate carrots. Yep, I hate cooked carrots, I can have them in salads and stuff. But my mom made this delicious carrot stir fry, by shredding the ingredients in the food processor first. I loved it! Okay, most of you must already be shredding carrots in a food processor, but somehow I’ve never thought of it before! So for other ignoramus friends like me, here is the simple carrot thoran recipe.
- 3 Medium sized Carrots
- 1 cup onion pieces quartered
- 1 green bell pepper
- 3 sliced green chilies
- 1/2 cup shredded coconut
- 1″ piece ginger
- salt to taste
- 1 tbsp oil
- 1/4 tsp mustard seeds
- 1/8 tsp gram daal
- 2 dry red chilies
- 1/2 tbsp sliced shallots
Shred carrots, onions, bell pepper and ginger in a food processor.
Heat oil, splutter mustard seeds, add daal, dry red chilies and shallots and saute till brown.
Add the shredded carrot mixture, coconut , green chilies and salt.
Cover and cook for a few minutes. Open the lid and stir till the mixture is completely dry.
No need to add water, there is enough water in the carrot to cook itself.
