I relish carrots and use them regularly in my cooking and often drink a glass of fresh carrot juice during the early part of the day. The fridge is always stocked with at least 2 pounds of this Vitamin A rich vegetable. Last week, I made a simple sesame flavored carrot fry that made for a delectable side with rice and sambar. I would rate as one of the best Indian vegetarian recipes using carrots.
This is a basic carrot fry recipe and you can play around with whatever ingredients you have on hand. I used toasted sesame seeds and coriander powder as the main spices which made for a good combination of flavors. You can add a dash of cumin powder and dry fenugreek leaves (methi) for a flavor variation. I would suggest using curry leaves during the tempering process as they lend a unique aroma to the carrot fry.
