I love carrots and I use it regularly in salads, kosambiri, payasam, flat bread, Muthia and addition to that list is this Carrot chutney.This month for the shhhh cooking secrectly challenge, the decided theme was chutneys. For this challenge, I am paired with Prathima who blogs at Prathu’s food . She challenged me to use carrot and sesame seeds . As we love thogayal and chutney , I loved to explore this combination and totally loved it. This Carrot chutney can be paired with dosa, roti or even plain white rice

Carrots have numerous benefits when we eat it and some of them are:

1. Carrots are rich in beta carotene which is then converted to vitamin A and hence improves vision

2. It is said to prevent cancer

3. It helps prevent infections and helps to regain a healthier skin

5. It is supposed to help in preventing stroke  and  heart diseases
