Recipe Tips:

The secret to a perfect texture is to remove the lid and reduce the water in cooking so the mixture just begins to stick, resist stirring, and don't leave the room and get absorbed in something else when it's getting close to done!

You'll need a heavy weight, wide bottomed eight quart pot or dutch oven for this recipe.

Recipe Comments:

This is absolutely delicious and totally satisfied the cravings of two Indian food lovers! Used fresh ginger and did not have the exotic spice I cannot recall right now. Can't one just slice the carrots, like in the photo, or do you think the strips add something? Perhaps beauty, as the colors and textures melded as beatifully as the flavors! :-) Thanks so much for a wonderful recipe!
