Sometimes a meal is all about the side dish. A good side dish can really elevate a meal. This is why I love Thanksgiving so much. Side dishes could literally be a full meal for me, especially a plate of unique side dishes. My Indian Spiced Carrots with Curry Sauce are a decadent, easy to make side dish perfect for any meal. Roasted carrots coated in Indian spices and served with a creamy curry sauce are delicious with every bite. This is a Weight Watcher friendly recipe and each serving is 1 SmartPoint.
I’m always looking for different ways to roast vegetables. Vegetables can be a versatile side dish because with the right spice combination, vegetables can be transformed into a completely different side dish each time you make them. Roast veggies with basil, oregano, and thyme for Italian spiced veggies, roast vegetables with cumin and chili powder for taco spiced veggies, and roast vegetables with garam masala and coriander for Indian spiced veggies.
I recently really started to really love roasted carrots. Usually, my preferred method of eating a carrot is raw with hummus or in a salad. Crunchy and a bit sweet. Roasting carrots is a real game changer for me. Perfectly roasted carrots are so soft they melt in your mouth. Carrots make for a great roasted vegetable side dish and this recipe is the perfect side dish for any meal.
The main spice in this recipe is Garam Masala. If you’ve never cooked with garam masala, it will be a staple in your spice rack after making this dish! Garam Masala is a common spice in Indian cooking. It has a mixture of pepper, cloves, mace, cardamom, cumin, bay leaf, and cinnamon. It might sound like an odd spice combination but it’s comforting, a bit sweet, and goes great with pretty much any vegetable, especially carrots. This recipe is easy to follow and only takes about 45 minutes to make. Mix baby carrots with olive oil, garam masala, coriander, salt and pepper and roast in the oven for about 40 minutes until the carrots are soft.
While the carrots are roasting, make the curry sauce. This sauce is SO GOOD. I could have made this recipe without the sauce and it would have been good, but dipping the carrots in the sauce really takes this dish up 20 levels. I could totally dip anything in the sauce and be a happy lady 🙂 . The sauce is a mixture of Greek Yogurt, Garam Masala, and lime juice. Just mix everything together and patiently wait for the carrots to finish roasting!
Indian Spiced Carrots with Curry Sauce are a decadent, easy to make side dish perfect for any meal. Roasted carrots coated in Indian spices and served with a creamy curry sauce are delicious with every bite. Easy to make, perfectly spiced with a hint of sweet, and only 3 grams of fat per serving. I like to garnish my carrots with fresh cilantro on the top to add some freshness. Weight Watchers friendly recipe and 1 SmartPoint per serving!
I hope you enjoy these bites of flavor!
