Carrots with Fresh Cilantro

Here is another quick and easy recipe. Of all the different ways in which carrots can be prepared, this is my favorite.


  • 3 tbsp canola oil (or olive oil)
  • pinch of hing
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 4-5 big carrots, peeled, diced
  • 8 tbsp finely chopped cilantro
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp garam masala
  • lemon juice, to taste


To the hot oil add the hing and cumin seeds. After 15 seconds add the carrots, cilantro, cayenne, salt, garam masala, and lemon juice. Stir for a minute. Add 3 tbsp water, cover and cook for about 5 min, till carrots are tender.
