Araithokkalu & Carrot Pachadi/Plantain Peel & Carrot Chutney/Carrot & Raw Banana Peel Chutney

Hello friends,this is an other delicious and healthy chutney that I tried by combining raw plantain peel, carrot and cilantro stalks.It turned out to be very tasty and we all enjoyed it with warm rice and also as a side for chapatis and dosas.Hope you will try it and find it delicious too.


This is how the recipe goes------------

Main Ingredients :
--------------------
Plantain/Raw Banana Peel............1 large steamed
Carrot.........................................1 large steamed
Green Chilly................................4(small)
Garlic Cloves..............................3(small)
Tamarind Paste...........................2tsp
Yogurt........................................2tsp
Turmeric.....................................1/4tsp
Salt.............................................to taste
Cilantro Stalks............................handful

Seasoning Ingredients :
---------------------------
Sesame Oil..............................2tsp
Red Chilly...............................1 large(as per your taste)
Chana Daal.............................1/2tsp
Urad Daal...............................1/2tsp
Mustard Seeds........................1/4tsp
Cumin Seeds...........................1/4tsp
Asafoetida/Hing.......................1/8tsp

Preparation :
------------------
Wash the plantain/raw banana and the carrot under cold water and remove the tips and cut them in halves and pressure cook them for 2 whistles.Once the pressure cooker cools down take veggies out from the cooker and peel the plantain skin and cut the peel & carrot into big chunks and put them into the blender.Also add the turmeric,salt,cilantro stalks,tamarind paste and yogurt to the blender and blend them.
 
 To prepare the seasoning place a pan on the stove on medium heat and add the oil to it.Once the oil heats up add the chana daal,urad daal, mustard and cumin seeds.Once they start to splutter add red chilly,garlic and slit green chilly to the seasoning and fnally add hing and switch off the stove.Now add a little of the seasoning along with garlic and chillies to the chutney in the blender and blend it well.Once done tranfer the chutney into a container and add the remaining seasoning to it.

Delicious Plantain Peel & Carrot Chutney is ready to be served.

Note :
---------
1) In this chutney I used only the plantain peel not the pulp.

2) This is an other way to use the plantain peel without discarding it as it has lots of healthy nutrients.

3) This chutney is very healthy because we use only 2tsps of oil just for the seasoning.
