Salt to taste.
Peel the carrot and cut it into thin rounds and set aside.
Grind, turmeric, garlic, coconut,fennel seeds, and red chillies to a smooth paste and set aside.
Heat oil in a kadai and add the mustard seeds and urad dal.
When the mustard seeds pop add the curry leaf, cut carrots and sautee for a minute.
