Ayurveda has inspired me to create some cooked vegetable recipes at home. Starting with this curried carrot dish. Carrots are a food I almost always eat raw and have in my fridge every week, so it seemed like a good place to start. Plus with this dish you get the added health benefits of spices, nuts and herbs.
