Carrot Chutney

Saturday, November 14, 2009

I love coconut chutney, without any second thoughts. I am sure you all do. But have you ever been tempted to substitute it with a low calorie version.

As I drown my idlis into a huge bowl of chutney, I know, this isn't doing any good to my body. Nevertheless, I relish it.

The other day, I was looking for some low-cal chutney solutions. And, I found one here.

Carrot C

This chutney goes well with Idlis/Dosas/Rottis. But if you cannot do without your beloved coconut chutney, don't make this one :)
