CARROT CHAMMANTHY





INGREDIENTS


Grated coconut---------------- 1/4 cup
Carrot grated or peeled----  1/4 cup
Tamarind------------------------ a small piece ( about 1 inch piece)
Dried red chilly-----------------1 large
Curry leaves---------------------a few (optional)
Oil--------------------------------- 1 tsp


METHOD

  1. Add a tsp of oil in a medium heat pan.
  2. Add tamarind to it.
  3. After tamarind is slightly cooked,add coconut,dried red chilly,curry leaves and grated or peeled carrot.
  4. Stir continuously in medium flame till coconut is light golden brown in color.
  5. Switch off the flame and allow it to cool. Then grind it to a smooth thick paste.
  6. Carrot chammanthy is ready to serve with kanji or with rice and curry.



Note: You can use pomegranate instead of tamarind. Check this.


Options: You can make chammanthy using beetroot instead of carrot in the same method.
You can also make coconut /thenga chammanthy in the same method by not adding any vegetables.
The consistency of chammanthy is personal choice. You can either make it as a thick and round ball shaped chammanthy or a slightly loose chammanthy by adjusting the amount of water used  for grinding it.
