Roasted Carrots with Chana Masala Recipe

Roasted Carrots with Chana Masala

Serves 4

Rustic roasted carrots paired with fragrant chana masala, a classic Indian chickpea and tomato curry, make a creative side dish for your holiday table.


  • 1 bunch carrots, peeled
  • 1 Tbsp brown sugar (optional)
  • 1 Tbsp neutral-tasting oil
  • Kosher salt and pepper
  • 10 oz Chana Masala (see Cook’s Tip)
  • Garnish:
  • 2 Tbsp chopped carrot-top greens, flat-leaf parsley, or cilantro


  1. Position oven rack in top third of oven. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. If carrots are thick, slice in half lengthwise. Place carrots on parchment-lined, rimmed baking sheet and drizzle with oil. Sprinkle with brown sugar, 3/4 tsp salt, and 1/4 tsp pepper. Toss to coat and spread out evenly.
  3. Roast for 15-20 minutes or until soft and browned, turning once after 10 minutes.
  4. While carrots roast, heat the chana masala. If it’s too thick, stir in a splash of water.
  5. To serve, place roasted carrots on a platter or 4 plates. Spoon chana masala over the top or alongside. Garnish with chopped carrots tops or herbs.
  6. Cook’s Tip:
  7. Find ready-to-heat chana masala in the grocery department.
