4 green chilis, halved
1/2 an onion, sliced (we use red)
7 curry leaves
Heat some oil and add these first three ingredients, and stir until the onion starts to brown a bit.
Add about 6 shredded carrots, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
Cover and cook 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Add a little dry, unsweetened coconut, stir it in and cook for 2 or 3 more minutes.
*It's called a "fry" becuase it doesn't have a sauce. If it has a sauce, it's called a "curry."
