Spicy Carrots Recipe

Spicy Carrots Recipes

Ingredients :

1lb carrots

2 cups water

1/2 tsp salt

1 tsp cumin seeds

1 red chili (to taste)

1 large garlic clove, crushed

2 tbsp olive oil

1 tsp paprika

juice of 1 lemon

flat leaf parsley, to garnish

Method :

Cut the carrots into slices about 1/4 inch thick. Bring the water to the boil and add the salt and carrot slices. Simmer for about 8 minutes or until the carrots are just tender, without allowing them to get too soft. Drain the carrots, put them into a bowl and set aside.

Grind or crush the cumin to a powder. Remove the seeds from the chili and chop the chili finely. Take care when handling as they can irritate the skin and eyes. Gently heat the oil in a pan and toss in the garlic and the chili. Stir over medium heat for about a minute, without allowing the garlic to brown. Stir in the paprika and the lemon juice. Pour the warm mixture over the carrots, tossing them well so they are coated with the spices. Spoon into a serving dish and garnish with a sprig of flat leaf parsley.

Serves 4

Adding spices to the carrots before leaving them to cool infuses them with flavor - an ideal dish to serve cold the next day (or up to a week later, if you keep them in the fridge).
