"A nice side for a Indian dinner. Garam Masala is an Indian spice mix. I have an easy version posted here, or you can buy it pre-mixed in ethnic sections of larger groceries or at Indian spice shops."

Made this with my homemade garam masala and no serrano, since my Indian chilli powder is very hot. The spices in this made the dish so delicious - it still was super spicy, but my carrots were also on the small side. I can't wait to try this again with less chilli powder to see how it turns out. Still loved loved loved the way it came out, just definitely on the Indian hot scale the way I made it.

Wow! This was so tasty! I'm not a fan of carrots+peas as this remembers me to ready made food, but this was so special that we all loved this very much. Thanks a lot for this tasty recipe!

I really enjoyed these. Some of the guests and family members thought they were too spicy. I used a serrano chile, and there was definitely heat in the dish. But I enjoyed it with the flavors of the spices. For those that are heat sensitive, I recommend seeding the peppers before cooking. Thanks for sharing. Made for CQ 2017 for the Smok'in Chefs.
