Carrot Stir Fry (Carrot Mezhukuparetti)

Carrots are rich in beta carotene and is a popular veggie in all parts of the world.Bunnies love carrots,so do kids love to eat them raw.We use it invariably in all curries and eat it raw in salads or raitha too.An excellent source of Vitamin A and a good source of potassium,also contains significant amounts of minerals.Today's recipe is a simple stir fry with carrots which I used to love a lot when mom made it and now my kids too love this with steamed rice.So,thought to share this fibre rich recipe with all :-))

garlic cloves 2 sliced (optional)

Super healthy and simple one. The good thing is , no need of grating the carrot, easy chops would do, will try this.
Also I have never added aniseed to carrot fry so far!!
