Sri Lankan carrot coconut milk curry(vegan, vegetarian).

 

Everyone loves carrots and this is an easy carrot curry recipe is prepared with coconut milk.

 

It’s a mildly spiced vegetable curry that you can even give toddlers(use a spoon to smash the carrots a little)with a bowl of rice or soft pieces of bread.

 

The carrot currie is also very light in spices so you don’t usually get the heavy curry flavors that some vegetarian dishes do.

 

This makes it a non-spicy vegetarian curry everyone in my family loves.

With its vibrant color, nutritional value, the carrot curry is a Sri Lankan dish to savor and shows you how simple flavors can work together.

 

 

Not to forget that every single ingredient, from turmeric, cardamom, fenugreek, curry leaves to garlic has natural health values that your body needs.

 

 

Did I mention its a curry cooked without oil?

 

Yes, it’s an oil-free vegan recipe. Carrot is a naturally sweet veggie that is rich in vitamins, minerals and fiber.

 

It is also a good source of antioxidants.
