Carrot Chutney Recipe | Gajar Chatni (for Idli, Dosa)

Carrot Chutney or gajar chatni is one of the easy and healthy and no coconut chutney recipe for idli, dosa, pongal, vada or any tiffin items. I used to make this carrot chutney a lot some time back and along with few variations.  This carrot chutney is easy and a good change from normal coconut, onion or tomato chutney plus a good way to include carrot in our diet and specially for kids if they don't eat carrot, this is also no onion no garlic chutney recipe.

This carrot chutney has lovely color and hint of ginger makes it tasty. If you want you can add garlic too if you wish but normally I add ginger instead of garlic and the tempering is really not needed so you can skip it if you wish.


This chutney taste slightly sweet, spicy and tangy perfect blend and goes along idli, dosa very well. If you haven't tried carrot chutney yet then do give a try and you will like it too.
