Carrot Sesame Dry Curry (Poriyal)

A very healthy dish with sesame seeds. It is so easy to make it and very yummy. It will be pretty different from normal Carrot poriyal or salad we normally do. It goes well with every rice dish.  for Chappathi if you like dry side dish this will be perfect also. I have labeled this as non Indian for the fact you can do it just with Sesame seeds and Red chillies

Carrots - 4 Cups
Sesame Seeds - 1/4 teaspoon 
Salt - to taste
Sesame powder - 3-4 teaspoon (see below for recipe)
Oil - 1 teaspoon


1) Heat the kada and add oil
2) Add Curry Leaves fry for 5 sec
3) Chop carrots into 2 inch length  slices.
4) Cook carrots with salt by adding little water in a pan by covering it with lid. In between, if required add little water.
5) Cook till the carrots are done 3/4th.
6) Add Sesame Powder and mix it well
7) When the water content from the carrot completely evaporated and carrots are cooked, add sesame seeds.
8) Stir well to make the sesame seeds to coat with the carrot slices.
9) Remove from flame and serve hot with rice.
