I can't believe it's December already and in few short days we will be in a brand new year. Today we begin 23rd edition of Blogging Marathon and my theme for this week is "Cooking with Carrots". I like carrots and I add them to rice dishes and mix them with other veggies to make curries, pasta sauces etc. But when I think about it, I don't usually make dishes only with carrots. So when I saw this theme, I thought of trying dishes that highlight and have carrots as the main ingredient. For the first day, I made this...


4 serving

50 minutes




  • 2 carrots (- medium, grated)
