Top Review by Lorac

Very good! The usual carrot-raisin combination with the striking flavors of coriander, cumin and ginger. I made the recipe as directed. Even though I removed my pan from the heat,it was still too hot and the yogurt curdled. I served the carrots with Beer Marinate Beef Roast #61921. Four stars = Very good, will make again, needs no changes.
