One Fine Day And Some Roasted Carrots & Spring Onions With Chaat Masala

Roasted Root Vegetables with Tangy Indian Masala

Today I have way more photos to share with you than I have words. Photos from one fine day under the sun with some dear friends close by, the little one’s soft chubby palm wrapped around my finger and a camera held in the other hand.

It was a nice change to walk by people grabbing their coffee mugs rushing to work while me pausing after every two minutes taking pictures or following the little one running after pigeons.

After a long time I finally got a much needed break from a hectic schedule. A few of us friends (Rose, Vijitha and Kankana) planned to drop whatever we were busy doing and just took a day off to unwind.

As an added bonus, we also shared some common interests which, lets just say, involves camera and eating! So for one full day we ate, took photos, and then ate some more.

The same day at the farmer’s market I picked some gorgeous root vegetables so I am sharing with you a quick recipe for some Roasted Heirloom Carrots and Spring Onions. These tender and vibrant little sweet treats demand no adulteration. Less does the trick with them. So I just tossed them in olive oil, threw them in the oven for a few minutes, sprinkled a dash of chaat masala and served with our evening chai. They went faster than you can imagine!

Ingredients:
2 bunches of purple, yellow and orange heirloom carrots
1 bunch spring onions
1 tablespoon good quality extra virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon chaat masala

Method:
Wash the root vegetables thoroughly under water. Wipe off any dirt. Chop of the green, leafy part and save then for other recipes. I chop them and mix with flour to make parathas, poori, roti or can use then in veggie burgers or rice pilaf.

Cut the onions from the middle into two. Toss the vegetables with olive oil and bake them at 400 deg. for approximately 12-15 minutes.

Once baked, pull the vegetables out, sprinkle chaat masala on top and serve with a cooler or chai. 

On a side note, I am excited to be interviewing with the fabulous Neel of Learn Food Photography next week! If you have any food photography questions that you would want to ask me then submit your questions to Neel here.

  2. A lot of companies have chosen to downsize, and maybe that was the right thing for them. We chose a different path. Our belief was that if we kept putting great products in front of customers, they would continue to open their wallets.

  3. I didn’t see it then, but it turned out that getting fired from Apple was the best thing that could have ever happened to me. The heaviness of being successful was replaced by the lightness of being a beginner again, less sure about everything. It freed me to enter one of the most creative periods of my life.

  5. Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn’t really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while. That’s because they were able to connect experiences they’ve had and synthesize new things.

  14. I love to cook when I have the time. I don’t cook French or Mexican food with exact recipes. I just go to the supermarket and buy things that look good, and I mix it all together and invent something. Ninety-five percent of the time, I’m lucky. Sometimes not so lucky, and I say, ‘Let’s go out to dinner.’

  15. Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything – all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure – these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important.

    • A lot of people in our industry haven’t had very diverse experiences. So they don’t have enough dots to connect, and they end up with very linear solutions without a broad perspective on the problem. The broader one’s understanding of the human experience, the better design we will have.
