    The carrot salad can also be served on its own without the lamb.

    The mix of flavors in this dish was delicious; I found it to be a creative use of carrots and ground meat (I used ground turkey). I used plenty of cilantro and mint, which added some bright, fresh notes to the salad, contrasting nicely with the warm spices in the meat. Toasting the sesame seeds to a deep nutty brown also added great flavor. Since I didn't have much garam masala on hand, I used Madras curry powder, and left out the cumin seeds as I didn't have whole cumin. Slicing carrots wafer thin by hand can be a bit time consuming, but is something that could be done in advance. My three-year-old happily ate the meat on its own along with some plain carrot slices, as the dressing was a little much for his palate. Update: I have determined the best way to eat this salad is to mix the carrot salad and meat together in a bowl. You can even throw in some additional greens, and the carrots do well the next day when softened from marinating in the dressing.

    Very nice. I followed the recipe but the quantities of coriander and mint that are required are so small that there is not much point unless you have some around. Served with pita bread crisped up in the oven. I thought that the dressing was amazing.

    I used minced beef instead of lamb as I'm not keen on lamb. The carrots took forever to get wafer thin without a mandolin...I used a "speed peeler", but it wasn't so speedy.
