This is a great combination of textures and fragrant, spicy flavours that has the added advantage of being quick to make. Being enriched with vitamin A, iron and fibre, it is nutritious. Avoid peeling the carrots as the peel is rich in fibre. Simply scrub the carrots under remaining water to remove dirt.

Cooking Time : 15 mins.
Preparation Time : 10 mins.

Serves 4.

Ingredients
2 cups carrots, cut into cubes
2 cups fenugreek (methi) leaves, chopped

12 mm. (½”) piece ginger, finely chopped
¼ teaspoon turmeric powder (haldi)
2 teaspoons coriander (dhania) powder
2 teaspoons oil
salt to taste
Method
1. Heat the oil in a non-stick pan and add the cumin seeds.
2. When they crackle, add the onions, green chillies, garlic and ginger and sauté for 2 minutes.
3. Add the fenugreek leaves and sauté for another 2 minutes.
4. Add the carrots, turmeric powder, coriander powder, salt and 1 cup of water and stir.
5. Cover and cook over a slow flame till all the moisture has evaporated and the carrots are tender.
