Ghee-roasted Carrot Crinkles

Winter in California is a combination of continual rain and kind of intense low temperatures. This is the perfect weather to eat unhealthily and gain weight 😛 Tis the season when my heart says pakode (veggie fritters), but my brain keeps saying ‘Lol….No wayyyyyy!!!!’ To stop this constant heart-brain argument, I decided to make/bake something that was healthy and delicious. Well, what is better than fried food? Baked food!

I bought a bag of carrot crinkles from the grocery store. Washed the carrots, and pat dried them using the paper towel. Baked them for like 40-50 minutes to perfection. Here is the step-by-step:


1 lb bag of crinkle cut carrots (I used this)

3-4 tbsps ghee

Salt to taste


*Preheat oven at 400F. Line the baking tray with parchment paper.

*Wash the carrots thoroughly, and pat dry them with a clean cloth or paper towel. Place it in a bowl.

*Slightly warm the ghee up to get the liquid consistency. Add ghee in the carrots 1 tsp at a time. Make sure you mix it well. Leave approx. 1 tbsp aside.

*Now lay carrots evenly in a single layer on the baking tray. Sprinkle salt per your taste.

*Bake them for 40-50 minutes. Check and stir the carrots every 10 to 15 minutes, so that its evenly toasted.

*Serve while hot, and sprinkle with additional salt or pepper if needed.
