    • Thank you Yaal for visiting my site and your kind comments. This chutney will go well with Idli and Dosa. But can be taken with chapati too. With rice also you can try – may be it tastes like carrot rice.

  17. Hi Kamala
    A friend once gave me recipe which I tried and found to be excellent; although she told me to use it as a dip with pita chips, to me it tasted like chutney.
    Red peppers roasted and ground with handful of walnuts, amchur powder, red chillies, paprika powder, and 2 tablespoons of pomegranate juice.
    The walnut and juice added a special flavor to the already flavorful red peppers.

  18. Hi mam i tried ur carrot was really ausum.My husband appreciated me.Thank u so much mam.
