Yum what a great way to get a few carrots in the diet! I didn't have any tahini so used sesame seeds that I sprinkled over the top half-way through cooking to toast and stirred at the same time. Because I didn't have cumin seeds used 1 1/2 teaspoons of ground cumin with a small amount of paprika flakes. It's really bursting with flavour and that makes it a wonderful healty snack with plain foods like celery sticks or rice crackers. I roasted for 20 minutes and used the full 1/4 cup of water which gave it a nice smooth but still firm texture.
