Moroccon Carrot Salad with Spiced oil Nuts & Raisins

I was not sure whether i would be able to do publish today's post on time, but thankfully here i am! I totally enjoyed this week's moroccon theme, thought we did only 3 simple recipes, but i have bookmarked loads, and i m sure our boss +srivalli jetti will definitely give us this theme again in the coming months. 
Today's recipe was done in flat 15 minutes.  I started around 4:30 pm and i clicked it at 5:00, as my daylight was fading fast, i just propped my board on my cloth dryer and used my phone camera to click these pictures. I m pretty happy with the pictures too. 
The story above was to state how easy is this recipe. This salad would be a great addition to your party table, if making ahead, just parboil the carrots and keep it refrigerated and on the day of serving, toss it with the seasonning and just before putting it on the table garnish it with nuts and raisins. Do not miss that garnish, those toasted pistachios add a great texture to the salad.
Do try this recipe and let me know how you liked it!

Ingredients (serves 1)
1 medium sized carrot, chopped into chunks
1-2 tsp toasted, silvered pistachios
5 nos black raisins
salt to taste

1-2 tsp oil
1 fat clove of garlic, minced 
2 pinches of Ras el hanout 
a pinch of cumin powder, paprika powder and pepper powder tossed together
1/2 tsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp honey
  • Wash and peel the carrots, chop them into chunks, take them in a sauce pan, add water to sumberge the carrots and let it sit on heat until it starts to boil. Once it starts to boil, take it off the heat, drain and set aside until it cools down.
  • While it is cooling, whisk the seasonning together. I had the spice oil from yesterday roasted potatoes, i have used the same. If you dont wish to use ras el hanout, you can mix paprika, cumin and pepper powder together as per you taste and use it for spicing the salad.
  • Once the carrots are cool, take in a salad bowl, add the seasonned oil, lemon juice,salt and toss together. 
  • Just before serving, add the toasted pistachios and raisins to the salad and serve.
