Indian Spiced

Yesterday I made garam masala roasted carrots with red onions and garlic. Garam masala means hot mixture as in pungent not hot like a chili pepper. I love it so much. I used a store bought one but I have made my own before in my spice grinder. I live relatively close enough to the city of diamond bar which has some really good indian markets.

The carrot mixture was put on toasted french rolls with cream cheese. I know, a carrot sandwich? Yum! Here is the cream cheese being weighed out. I only used an ounce for each sandwich.

Here is the left over golden deliciousness. I also used four tablespoons of olive oil for the mixture but next time i think i can use about 3 instead. Also I used about a pound and half of carrots one onion and 5 roughly chopped garlic cloves.I would also use another onion too instead of one. It was enough to make about 4 or 5 sandwiches. So there were leftovers.

Here is a close up of my sandwich. I must admit that more cream cheese would have been nice but you cant eat like a queen everyday,can you?
