My Notes:

  • I used jeera for tempering so used chat masala powder.But you can replace chat masala powder with roasted jeera powder.
  • You can even use 1:1 ratio for curd:carrots or as per you wish.
  • Make sure to beat the curd well before mixing.
  • You can even saute the carrots for a while and then add but I prefer raw carrots.
