Carrot Saaru - Readers Recipe ~ No dal saaru

I got this recipe some time back from Manasi, my blog reader. I gave it a try one day and it was instant hit at home. The recipe does not demand for "pricey dal" to make it tasty. Carrots and few spices with coconut and voila! you have finger licking saaru. You can drink it as a soup if you want to, but it tastes yumm with rice. Give it a try..
Thanks you Mansi for sharing this recipe with me :)
