Indian Carrot Curry (Gadjar Kari)
This Bombay dish is sweetened with bananas and raisins, quite different 
from European honey-glazed carrots. 

1/4 c oil
1/4 c Chopped parsley or coriander
1 tb Cumin seeds or ground cumin
5 1/2 ts Yellow mustard seeds
5 1/2 ts Ground turmeric
1 ts Ground cardamom
1 ts Curry powder
1/4 ts Ground cloves
1/4 ts Cayenne (optional)
1 lb Carrots; sliced or cut into
1 Banana; peeled and sliced
1/4 c Golden raisins
1 c Water
1/2 ts Salt or to taste

Heat oil in a large nonreactive saucepan over medium heat. Add cumin seeds,
mustard seeds, turmeric, cardamom, curry powder, cloves and cayenne and
saute until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add carrots and saute until lightly
golden, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in bananas and raisins. Add water, salt and
pepper to taste. Bring to a boil, cover and reduce heat to low. Simmer
until carrots are tender but not mushy, about 20 to 25 minutes. Shake pan
occasionally. Uncover, increase heat to medium, and cook, shaking the pan
frequently, until most of the liquid evaporates and vegetables are glazed,
5 to 10 minutes. Garnish with parsley or coriander. Yields 4 side-dish
