Ingredients

  • 2 tsp cumin seeds
  • 750g carrots , cut into short sticks
  • 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 tbsp lemon juice
  • 4 tsp light muscovado sugar
  • 2 garlic cloves , thinly sliced
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • handful of chopped coriander
  • finely grated zest of 1 lemon

Method

  • STEP 1

    Put the cumin seeds in a dry frying pan set over a lowish heat. Cook for a few minutes, tossing in the pan, until they smell fragrant and have darkened slightly. Grind them in a spice or coffee grinder.

  • STEP 2

    Put the carrots in a saucepan and cover with cold water. Add a few pinches of salt, then bring to the boil. Turn the heat to low and cook very gently for 3-4 minutes. Drain.

  • STEP 3

    Whisk the oil, lemon juice and sugar, then stir in the garlic and 1⁄4 tsp salt. Stir in the cumin and paprika. Mix well with the carrots, then leave to cool, stirring occasionally. Toss in the coriander and lemon zest. Serve at room temperature.
