  1. Sailu, This is lovely and healthy. I make a version of this and it goes well with curd rice and pickle. One suggestion: a dash of lemon juice mixed in the carrot gives it added flavor.

  2. I have tried many of your recipes and most of them turn out great. I tried this one too and it was sooo easy and so palatable! Thank you.
