Whenever I prepare 'Kathol' ( Beans Curry ) for dinner, I don't prepare extra curry as we do not like both dishes together with gravy,  thus I always prepare dry sabji or quick and healthy stir fry like Red Cabbage and Apple , Raw Papaya stir fry , Beetroot, Carrot and Daikon and mixed seeds warm salad , Carrot Sambharo ( Gujarati stir fry ) and Carrot and Daikon salad with sesame seeds .

As much as I enjoy raw carrots in salad, I like my carrots "Al Dente" too, No wonder I have so many Carrot stir fry recipe :).  Recently I read somewhere that cooked carrots are healthier than raw and provides more Beta-Carotene, so now I have one more reason to celebrate this recipe !!

I've made this dish always with orange carrots but this time I used some red Indian carrots and cut them into matchstick so they would cook quickly without losing its texture, colour and nutritious. I sautéed carrots in oil with garlic and dry fenugreek seeds and added just a few spices and finished with some aromatic dry fenugreek leaves.

This recipe is so simple and easy to cook, apart from slicing and cutting carrots into matchstick, but if you have a food processor this job can become easy too. Once preparation is done, cooking goes very smoothly.
