CARROT PUTTU

Print Friendly and PDF
We make this side dish only for sambar rice. Sambar Sadam , Carrot puttu & appalam (papad) is a divine combination..I learnt this from my mom.Its very easy to prepare.Try this for kids .. I am sure they’ll love it.Its always better to eat the carrots raw to get the complete nutrition.If not possible, its good to steam to retain the nutrition.Here i ‘ve steamed the carrot. So i feel this side dish is good for growing children who doesn’t eat raw carrot .

Carrot puttu

  • Big onion – 1 no (Finely chopped)

To Temper :
  • Mustard seeds – 1/2 tsp
  • Urad dal – 1/2 tsp
