Carrot Chutney

Carrot chutney is a colorful healthy tasty chutney. As our daily screen time is getting increased nowadays, it is better to take carrots at least one serving per day for good vision.  It is a good alternate to our regular coconut chutney or onion chutney and it goes very well with spongy or crispy dosa.

This chutney is prepared by my mother-in-law, Mrs. N.Easwari, a septuagenarian. She still shows lot of interest to learn new recipes by watching cookery shows & reading magazines and tries to make them whenever possible.

Cooking Time: 10 min

Serves : 4


  1. Carrot – 1 No (large)
  2. Red chillies – 5 Nos
  3. Tamarind – (please refer the image)
  4. Oil (for frying carrot)- 1 tsp
  5. Salt – 3/4 tsp


Cooking Method:

  • Peel the carrot & chop roughly.
  • Heat a pan with oil.
  • Add red chillies & carrot pieces.
  • When chillies are roasted, remove them from pan and keep aside.
  • Add tamarind and saute for 2 min and set aside till it reaches room temperature.
  • First grind red chillies into powder and then add tamarind & fried carrot pieces to grind.
  • Add 3 tbsp of water & salt and grind into fine paste.
  • Transfer the chutney to serving dish and garnish with tempering.

Please Note:

This chutney is prepared spicier as it is intended to serve with spongy dosa . If you want to make it less spicy, you can reduce 1 or 2 chillies or you can add a teaspoon of coconut gratings.

If you add coconut & carrot in equal portions, you will get a chutney in vibrant yellow color, so you can try this carrot-coconut chutney specially for your kids!
