Honey glazed carrots

DSC_1133

For my third and final dish in the ‘One vegetable three ways’ theme, I chose to do the ever simple and ever popular dish -honey glazed carrots. Usually baby carrots are used for this recipe but since those aren’t available in my part of the world, I picked the bigger carrots and sliced them to make this dish. I make it for the daughter for her snack box or an evening snack and she likes it most of the time. Kids!

Serves 2

WHAT WE NEED

300 gms Carrots (3-4)

1-2 tbsp Butter (Salted / unsalted)

1-2 tbsp Honey

A pinch of red chilly powder

A pinch of salt, if using unsalted butter

1 1/2 cups Water to cook the carrots

WHAT TO DO

  • Heat the water in a vessel
  • Wash, peel and cut the carrots into finger long pieces
  • Add the carrots to the water once it starts getting hot
  • The carrots should be tender in 5-7 minutes
  • Drain the water and set the carrots aside
  • In a pan, heat the butter
  • Once the butter melts, add the carrots and salt (if using) and mix well
  • After 2-3 minutes, add honey and mix well
  • If this is not for kids, then use red chilly powder to balance the sweetness of carrots and honey
  • Simmer for 3-4 minutes
  • Once the carrots are glazed well, take off from the heat
  • Enjoy!

    Good one, Sowmya. My kids will definitely love these carrots with a honey glaze. Me thinking – Can honey be heated? Any thoughts?

    1. Sowmya:) says:

      I was quite sceptical about it but turns out it can be heated and it melts beautifully …..it takes a minute or so to get the glaze and then we can take it off the heat. Do try & let me know
