  5. Curry leaves - 1 tbsp
  6. Coconut pieces - 1 tsp
  7. Oil - 1 tsp and for greasing the paniyaram mould
  8. Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
  9. Urad dal - 1 tsp
  10. Corrainder leaves - 1tsp
  11. Salt to taste
Direction to cook :

1.   Heat a tsp of oil in the pan, add mustard seeds, urad dal & curry leaves.  Add finely chopped onion & green chillies.  Saute till tender.

2.  To the dosa / idly batter, add the above seasonings.  And add the grated carrot, coconut pices, corriander leaves & salt to taste.
