These Caramelized Garam Masala Carrots are tossed in a fresh lemon juice + garam masala blend and then baked to perfection. It’s time to let the vegetable be the star of the dinner table show!
Sometimes, I just want the vegetable to be the star of the show. I want to cook up a simple protein (maybe a pan-seared fish) and simple starch (maybe some white rice) and plate them next to a KILLER vegetable. These Caramelized Garam Masala Carrots hit the spot! They’re tossed in the loveliest garam masala + lemon juice mix and then baked until the outside has a slight caramelized finish. Garnish with some chopped golden berries (or currants would be great!) and fresh parsley.
If you’re looking to serve these at a dinner party, they’re stunning next to even fancier proteins (rib roast) and a lovely pot of garlic mashed potatoes. I just love them!
If you can’t get your hands on garam masala, curry powder could be a substitute. If you’re looking for more rockstar veggie ideas for you next dinner, you might also LOVE these Ginger Orange Caramelized Carrots as well!

Flagged this recipe MONTHS ago and finally got around to trying them for a dinner side last night. These were SUCH a hit. These yummy carrots will be in our regular menu rotation. I didn’t even have the golden berries, but turned out wonderfullly!
