Coming to carrot poriyal/stir-fry. I know it is a simple recipe. Each people will have their own style of cooking. I posted this recipe so that you will know how I make this poriyal/Stir-fry. There were days when I too don’t know how to make this stir-fry and was asking mom this recipe. So it’s a recipe for newbies to the kitchen, bachelors. This stir fry goes well with Sambar as well as other kuzhambu varieties. But sambar is my personal choice. You can also take a look at Carrot Rice/Carrot sadam which I posted earlier.
Now let’s see how to make this easy poriyal or stirfry.
