Adai with Avial and Carrot Chutney

BM # 55 Week 4  Day 2

For the second day under Healthy Family Dinners I have this Adai with Avial and Carrot Chutney. Adai is a savory pancake from the South . I remember making Adai Avail combo and everyone liking it , I had also bookmarked the carrot chutney from Kalyani's space so decided to team it with Adai, Avail and make it a complete healthy meal.

Healthy Carrot Garlic Chutney

1 carrot, cubed
1-2 green chillies
4-5 garlic pods
3 tsp coconut, grated
11/2 tbsp fried gram / daliya
1/2 tsp fenugreek seeds
Tamarind a small lemon sized ball
Salt to taste

1 tsp oil
1tsp Urad Daal
Pinch hing
Few curry leaves
Whole red chillies

Heat oil.
Add garlic and carrots, Sauté till it leaves a aroma.
Transfer to another pan and cool.
Using the pan with oil fry Methi seeds, coriander and red, green chillies.
Add tamarind.
Let cool and then add fried gram.
Grind all the ingredients , plus coconut and salt.
Add water to adjust the consistency of the chutney.
Temper in the order of tempering ingredients.
