This is probably my new favorite way of serving carrots. The addition of pistachios and mangoes is perfect, and I loved the spice blend. I will be making this often- thanks for sharing!

This was a really interesting dish. Wasn't sure what to expect with the mango, but it all works well together. Unfortunately I didn't have any pistachio nuts (that would have been a great addition), but otherwise made as written except for parsley instead of cilantro. I thought the spice was just right. This would be an interesting side dish for a BBQ party, thanks for sharing! ZWT6.
