Super easy and a nice tasty different way to do the carrots. Went well with Cheesy Chicken Legs, #154452.

These carrots are so delicious! A break from the same old carrots. I didn't use the microwave....just steamed them on the stove, but they are still easy to make. Just the right amount of sweetness and subtle spiciness. I took your suggestion in step #4 to use garam masala. LOVED it! Don't be afraid to serve these carrots to kids; mine loved them. Thanx for posting. We'll have these again.
