From Sheryl and Mel London's "The Elegant Bean". You could substitute a less potent ground red chile if you like, but the combination of spicy and sweet is sublime. The two different cuts of the carrots are for textural contrast, but if you're in a rush, just shred all three in the food processor. The authors suggest serving with grilled lamb chops and couscous for a quick dinner.
