  1. Very good recipe. My husband commented that eating this meal feels healthy because of the fact that its not oily and vegetarian. the portion of the ingredients is balance enough not to let one or the other overtake the taste. the taste of balsamic vinegar is not as strong as chinese black vinegar and the honey is also not so sweet at the end. while the taste of the garlic still exist after simmered in the sauce. I have the carrot simmer in low heat for 25-30mins so that it is still crunchy with the sauce so that the taste of the sauce can be absorbed into the carrot. Remember to slice the carrot really really thin as +- 3-5mm. Will definitely make again in the future. Thanks.
  2. What a wonderful surprise this carrot recipe was. Made it for Easter to go with a roast pork and both my husband and I really enjoyed it. I may try fig balsamic next time but the recipe is perfect just the way it is. Enjoyed the crunch of the carrot that remained even after the sauce thicken. We will be making this one again and again.


Hi everyone! I'm addicted to recipezaar - there are so many things that I love about this site; the wonderful people, recipes, lots of great pictures and there's always someone who'll answer my cooking/baking/general question. I grew up in Malaysia, but now live in sunny Singapore. Both are beautiful tropical (read: HOT!) countries in Southeast Asia. There are so many good food here, especially ethnic stuff like spicy Malaysian curries (which will clear the worst blocked nose), flaky & crispy Indian roti paratha/canai, homey Chinese stir-fries, rich & decadent Asian desserts like kuih lapis (Malay many-layers cake), pineapple tarts, crumbly peanut cookies etc. <img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v632/zaarfreak/REI/12may05REI2_S.jpg" alt="Image hosted by Photobucket.com">
