1 small onion chopped finely 
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
3-5 curry leaves
2 tsp olive oil

1/4 tsp ground black pepper

Wash, Peel and grate the carrots.
Heat a pan with oil and put mustard seeds when they start to splutter add in the curry leaves, 2 slit green chillies and onions. Stir for 30 seconds. 
Now put the grated carrots and keep the flame in medium, add salt and pepper and cover with lid and cook till carrot is well cooked for few minutes. 
Add 3 tsp of grated coconut and mix well and remove from fire.
Enjoy as a side dish.
