When the oil is warm enough add mustard seeds to it and allow the seeds to crack, later add channa dhal and kajju to the oil and fry till light brown, then add curry leaves,turmeric powder and hing to it and fry for a second. T hen add onion and sliced green chillies and fry, when the onions are half cooked add the grated carrot, fresh coconut and salt to it and mix well and fry till done.
