Nelakadalai pachadi / Groundnut Dip

Nelakadalai is tamil name for Groundnut and this pachadi / dip is a great accompaniment. I saw this from a TV show (Arokya Unavu in Jaya TV) and tried it the next day and we loved it..Has a nice variety of texture from the crushed groundnuts and the grated carrot and the seasoning... This goes very well with sambar rice or Biriyani or aloo paratha... Kept well in the fridge for 2 days.. Have loved it so much that this is my first choice when it comes to making pachadi.. My choice for N - Others / Miscellaneous
