Mustard Seeds - 1/2 tsp.

1. Grate the carrots. Chop the shallots and green chilies.Extract the lemon juice. Keep the seasoning ingredients ready.
2. Heat oil in a pan, add mustard seeds. Once the mustard splutter, add urad dal, channa dal and peanut and roast for a minute. Add green chilies and curry leaves and fry for few seconds.
