Carrot Thuvaiyal

For the third of Blogging Marathon with the theme CARROT I cooked this spicy and delicious Carrot thuvaiyal.
Black gram dhal   1tbsp
Red chillies         4-5
Asafoetida        a pinch
Oil                   1tsp
Tamarind       a small marble size
Salt               to taste
Grate the carrots and keep aside
Heat a pan with oil and add the black gram dhal , red chillies and asafoetida to it and saute till the dhal becomes a little brownish.Switch off the heat and let it cool
In the same pan , add the grated carrot and saute in a low flame till the raw smell goes away
Add this to the fried dhal mixture.
Add the tamarind and salt and grind the thuvaiyal into a smooth paste
Serve with hot rice and kootu
