Carrot Moongdal StirFry - A Microwave Recipe

Today I made this stir-fry and I found very little left in the end to take a click.This Carrot Stir-Fry is a popular side-dish of South India(Carrot Paruppu Usili-a Variation).U need 15 mins microwave cooking-time to prepare this dish. This less-spiced side-dish can pair up with rice and sambar or Puzhikuzhambu or Kara Kuzhambu or Korma or rasam since moongdal has been added.Try to add ur feedback after trying this dish at home.Bon Appetit!.
