Carrot-Groundnut Kootu

     Generally i like to have raw carrots rather than having boiled/cooked ones. But still, as i need to feed my lil one, will add/prepare this veggie in my dish whether with/as rice or salad or poriyal etc.etc. So, that was a hurry-burry weekday, thought of preparing some healthy stir fry for my lunch but when i searched my fridge, i can find hardly 3 carrots which wont be sufficient for 4 ppl (including MIL). So, was totally blank and now suddenly an idea got flashed, i got some fresh raw groundnuts which was untouched for a week's time, just to compensate the quantity, thought why not to add the Groundnut to the Carrots. Yes, even i did it, OMG ! what a taste and really loved the boiled groundnut taste while munching it :) Its for ur views now !!!



ALL YOU NEED:
Carrot 3 Nos.
Groundnut 1/2 cup
Moong Dhall 4 spoons
Chopped Onion 1 No.
Grated Coconut Handful
Corainder Leaf 2 Twigs
Dry Chilly 3 Nos.
Curry Leaf 1 Twig
Mustard 1 spoon
Salt To Taste
Oil 1 spoon

METHOD:
     Pressure cook plain groundnut for 3 whistles. Do another pressure cooking moongdhall and Carrots for 4 whistles. Leave it aside. Now take a pan, heat a spoon of oil, allow mustard to splutters. Add in dry chillies, Chopped onion, curry leaf, coriander leaf, do a sauting for by adding pinch of salt. Once done, add the pressure cooked items, groundnut, carrot+moong dhall, do fine sauting until the excess water gets dried. Now add on the grated coconut, do a sauting for 5 mins. Now transfer to serving bowl and serve hot !
