Carrots in spicy tomato sauce

By Manishta Sunnia

This is a very simple and tasty dish to make. I usually have it with couscous or rice.

  • Carrots
  • Tinned tomatoes
  • Garlic (finely chopped)
  • Ginger (finely chopped)
  • Chilli (flakes or fresh ones more for flavour. Powdered chilli do not tend to be flavoursome)
  • Fresh coriander (optional, also mint)


  1. Chop carrots in length or rounded. (I tend to cut my rounded at an angle for texture)
  2. Sautee carrots in oil for about 5 minutes then add garlic and ginger
  3. Add tinned tomatoes, season with salt and sprinkle chilli. (The aim here is to have flavour rather than heat, but do add chilli according to your taste)
  4. Simmer slowly for 15-20mins until the tomato sauce has thickened. If the sauce thickens too quickly, dilute with water and make sure carrots are cooked al dente.
  5. Chop coriander or mint roughly and add on top or mix through sauce.
  6. Serve warm and enjoy.

(Other options: squirt some lemon juice to make sauce tangy or shave some lemon zest for a additional but subtle flavour. )

  1. this is a great recipe. I cooked it on one of the first cool evenings in October and the spices make it a great winter warmer. Very easy and yummy. Off to pick more carrots to make it again…
