  1. The most fun you can possibly have with carrots is make barfi.

    Yes, it's called barfi (also spelled burfi). And yes, it tastes MUCH better than it sounds.

    1. re: tartiflette

      I agree. Indian carrot desserts rock! Search Gajar Halva online as well. ;-) Have fun!

    2. Moroccan Carrot Salad. There re many vairations on the dish but it is wonderful. For the 1 tsp. cumin in the dressing I find that toasting your cumin seeds in a dry skillet and grinding tghem in a mortar gives you a much richer flavor .

      You will need 1 1/4 lbs carrots, peeled, tops removed, cut into quarters and then into sticks. Cook in salted water 10-15 mins. until just tender and drain well.

      Heat 4 Tbs. EV olive oil in a large skillet and heat. Add the carrtos, 4 crushed garlic cloves, the ground tsp. of cumin, S&P and saute until the garlic begins to take on a nice gold color. Chill and just beforre serving sprinkle with the juice of half a lemon.

        1. Make this delicious grated carrot and avocado salad, perfect for summer.

          1. carrot fritters, top with
            cumin flavoured yogurt
            or grilled scallop with bell pepper salsa. YUM
