in south india, chutney recipes are generally prepared with almost all vegetables including the peel of many fruits and vegetables. each and every chutney has its own unique taste to offer. one such vegetable based chutney is carrot chutney which is largely popular due to its sweet and spice flavoured chutney recipe. i personally prepare it 2 occasions. basically, if i have some leftover carrots and i want to finish it off in one go than i end up preparing this chutney. the other occasion if i want an alternative to tomato and onion based chutney. basically, the taste and texture of this chutney are very similar to the latter.

while the recipe is extremely simple, yet i would like to highlight some tips, recommendations and serving suggestions for carrot chutney recipe. firstly, i always prefer to add coconut to most of vegetable-based chutneys. having said that it tastes equally good without it and is not mandatory to add it. secondly, the recipe can be easily extended by adding other veggies like onions, tomatoes and shallots. if you are planning to add these make sure to sauté it before grounding it. lastly, gajar ki chutney would last long for a week or 2 if prepared without coconut. you can easily refrigerate it in an airtight container and scoop only with the required amount of it.

finally, i do wish to highlight my other chutney recipes collection with this post of carrot chutney recipe. it includes recipes like dahi chutney, coconut chutney, red chutney, green chutney, schezwan chutney, peanut chutney, mango chutney and ginger chutney recipe. further, i would also like to highlight my other similar recipes collection like,
