Carrot Pachadi

Here is another recipe that I always make when I make a sadya. Pachadi is one of  Aishwarya's favorite  sadya dishes. It is also very easy to make, which is another reason I love it.
Carrots – 2
Yogurt – 3/4 cup
Oil – 1 tsp
Mustard seeds – 1 tsp
Shallots- 1 to 2
Ginger- 1/4 tsp chopped
Green chilies – 2
Curry leaves – few
Method :
Clean the carrots and shred them. Add salt, ginger, and finely sliced shallots, mix well with your hands.
Whisk yogurt and add the shredded carrot mix. Mix well and check for salt. If it’s thick, add some more yogurt. In a pan, heat oil and add mustard seeds, add green chilies and curry leaves, and give it a stir and remove from heat. Add it to the carrot yogurt mixture and mix well.
