made this last night and it was a huge hit. very flavourful. (however, i neglected to get mint, so we had a mint-less version - but wonderful nonetheless.)

Loved by even the non-carrot, non-salad eaters present! I doubled the quantities and 8 of us polished off every last morsel with Tandoori Roast chicken and the spiced rice recommended.
