Gajar Koshimbir

Carrots as we all know are the power house of Vit A. It is a well known fact that eating carrot regularly improves our eye sight. This fibrous vegetable also cleanses our teeth and stomach. Teething children can be given carrot sticks to chew. This will strenghthen their gums and also lessen the irritation in the gums.

Carrots can be included in our meal in various forms like in pulavs, vegetables and salads. This Gajar koshimbir is a tasty and colourful side dish . I made it yesterday for our lunch along with Thoya - daal  and batata-talasan. Needless to say we had a very satisfying and enjoyable lunch.

Ingredients :

2 cups ..........................Grated raw carrot

1tsp..............................mustard seeds
