Roasted Carrots Glazed With Chilli-Mango Chutney

There is something about lightly charred, roasted veg that perfectly soaks up any flavours you add. This marinade is simple, quick and creates deliciously sticky glazed carrots. Topped with crushed pistachios and fresh coriander, it’s a great side dish to serve as part of any Indian feast.
