Carrot Stir-Fry

I have had couple bunches of carrots, laying in my fridge for over a week now. So for tonights dinner I made a quick and simple stir-fry with carrots, using very few basic ingredients. This tastes good with Indian rotis or as a side dish with rice and Dal's.

Here is my recipe for simple carrot stir-fry.

Vegetables :
Carrots - 7 to 8 (medium size, skin peeled and washed)
Onion- 1 medium (thinly sliced)

For Tempering/Seasoning :
Oil - 1 tsp
Cumin/Jeera - 1/2 tsp

Spices (Powders) :
Garam Masala - 1tsp (substitute with cumin-coriander powder)
Red chili powder - 1-2 tsp

Garnish (Sprinkle on top):
Lime : about 1tsp (Freshly squeezed)
Cilantro/Coriander leaves- 1tbsp chopped.

Method :
  1. Peel the skin of carrots, wash and chop them like match sticks, Slice onions thinly to match the cut carrots.
  2. Heat oil, when hot add jeera seeds, when they start to pop add onions fry for  few minutes until its translucent. Now add carrots, salt mix well cover and cook till carrots are just tender not too soft.
  3. Add spices mix well, adjust salt if needed. Once the flavors are well combined, switch off the heat.
  4. Finally garnish with cilantro leaves and squeeze some fresh lime juice.
Ready to be served, Enjoy !
