Moroccan Roasted Carrot Soup

DSC_1164

The weather is Bangalore is amazing this time of the year. It is cold enough to want to have tea and hot, deep fried snacks all the time but not too cold that you need multiple layers of clothes. It is perfect weather for a soup and I had some carrots which had to be used at the earliest. I roasted them with some onions and garlic and blended it with some roasted cumin and the results were delicious to say the least. It is the perfect recipe for a lazy day meal because you get rather tasty results with minimal efforts.
