I’ve been introduced to some delicious carrot dishes lately. I saw a recipe for gajar halwa, or carrot pudding, on a blog of Indian recipes. So I ordered it from an area restaurant, Kiran Indian Cuisine. Wow, it reminded me of rice pudding, only sweeter and spicier. I want to try to recreate this at home. It’s a perfect holiday dessert.
At Balkanika, I fell in love with carrot tarator, one of many delicious dips the restaurant makes. It’s made with roasted carrots, garlic and Greek yogurt.
I have made this one at home, and it’s a great dip for veggies or pita.
