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.

A nice salad we had at room temperature. I used golden raisins as I think that is the version meant, unrefined extra virgin olive oil, dark brown sugar, freshly ground coriander, sea salt, thick yogurt, plus the rest of the ingredients. Made for ZWT7 Africa, for my team, Food.Commandos

Really good! Good hot, room temperature, cold. I keep snacking on them. I certainly shall make these carrots again. The spices, sugar and garlic are a perfect complement to the carrots. They are as good without the yogurt as with.
