Slow-roasting the carrots in a garam-flavoured yoghurt makes for gorgeous spicy curds clinging to the cooked carrots. This dish looks incredible, with the turmeric oil giving a final flashy streak of colour. My fridge is never without yoghurt. I use it almost daily in many different ways. The turmeric oil is an arresting shade of deep yellow-orange and has a fantastic peppery, mustardy flavour.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
2 tablespoons garam masala, (though this is equally good with ras al hanout or with either of the baharat blends)
1 garlic clove, crushed
200g greek yoghurt
5 tablespoons neutral oil
salt
freshly ground black pepper
500g small to medium carrots, trimmed, scrubbed or peeled and halved lengthways
1 large onion, finely sliced
1/2 level teaspoon ground turmeric
1/2-1 lemon, juiced, to taste
a small bunch fresh coriander, leaves roughly chopped, (use mint if you prefer)

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 220C°.
  2. Mix the garam masala with the garlic, half the yoghurt and half the oil in a large bowl and season with salt and pepper. Add the carrots and sliced onion and mix well to coat.
  3. Lay the coated carrots and onion on a roasting tray in a single layer and roast for about 25 minutes, or until tender and golden in places.
  4. Meanwhile, add the turmeric to the remaining oil and heat in a small pan over a moderate heat for 1 minute. Remove from the heat and put to one side.
  5. Mix the lemon juice and remaining yoghurt with half the chopped herbs, and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Place the cooked carrots (along with any caramelized bits from the pan) on a big plate. Dress with the yoghurt and turmeric oil and top with the rest of the chopped herbs.
