Tandoori Masala Carrots
A recipe I just made up a few years ago and my nine year old loved it. She calls these her " favorite " carrots. Who knew this little picky eater would love these flavours. Not only is it kid approved it's also easy as 1,2,3.
Finally I remembered to take some pictures to post it before we ate them all this time.
Here it is.
1.Choose your carrots & peel them
2. Chop your carrots
3. Cook your carrots
8-10 average size Rainbow carrots or any of your choice
1/2 tbsp Coconut oil
1 tsp Tandoori or indian masala spice
Salt & pepper ( optional )
If masala isn't a spice you like, try adding a spice you love to make it your own special dish.
Cajun, cayenne, chilli etc. Anything works.
** use organic when possible
Heat pan on high heat add oil and spices then add the chopped carrots. Coat carrots well with oil & spices.
Cook carrots till slightly tender with a crunch & are nice and brown on one or both sides.
I use a cast iron pan not only for the extra iron but also because this pan can sear food so fast.
Everyone seems to love carrots. Finding the right flavours seems easy. This was my twist. Hope you enjoy this one or one you love.
