Ingredients

  • 2 lbs /1kg carrots julienned
  • 5 tablespoons oil
  • 1 small onion finely diced
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon coriander seeds ground in pestle mortar
  • ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper or more for spicy
  • tablespoons vinegar

Instructions

  1. Peel the carrots, and julienne them using a mandolin slicer or julienne peeler. You can manually slice them into thin pieces, but using a mandolin slicer will be quicker. The longer the carrot strand, the better.
  2. Heat the oil in a frying pan, add the onions and fry until caramelized. Remove from heat.

  3. Add the salt, sugar, black pepper, coriander, cayenne and garlic to the fried onions. Mix until combined.

  4. Pour hot oil and onions onto the carrot mix well. Add vinegar and refrigerate until it's cool you're ready to serve.
