Often overlooked, the carrot posses a magical ability to tantalize ones taste buds. The secret to a good roasted carrot is to really roast it. Roast it hard. A carrot that is lightly cooked is good, but a carrot that is charred, and dances along the line of burnt is amazing. I have found that dusting the carrots in a mixture of cumin and turmeric adds to the richness and depth of the roasted carrot. A beautiful yogurt dressing with herbs and lemon off set the richness and provide a bright and acidic counterpart that rounds out the dish. Follow your senses in the kitchen, but I will say that if you think the carrot is ready, leave it a little longer... scary I know, but it will be worth it.
