Buttered Carrots and Red Onion Sautee

Mum: What are you making?

Me: I don’t really know, but I feel the flavors will work.. carrot-something

Mum: That’s the name you will use?

Me: That’s not it’s name-name. I will think about it as I type out the post.

Mum: What if you do not get a name?

Me: *Gives mum a polite and respectful side-eye* Then I will not post until I get a name.


My mum asks too many questions. For real. Especially when watching a movie and when she finds anyone making a new dish. Besides that, she provides much needed constructive criticism that has aided my growth as a food blogger. Wouldn’t have it any other way. Hours later after that conversation and long after they were devoured, I decided to name this after its ingredients. Just four ingredients, all of which are beautifully married to each other.

ingredients for buttered carrots_kaluhiskitchen.con_carrot recipes

1 teaspoon of butter

1 bunch of fresh coriander

1 red onion, finely diced

5 large carrots, sliced



Cut up your carrot width-wise. Let the rings have a thickness of about 1/4 and inch.

Steam them until they are done. If you do not have a steamer, you can boil them up to the point they are just beginning to soften. Do not let them get too mushy.

Put your butter in a pan and sautee your red onion until they are soft. Add the steamed/boiled carrots and toss them in the onions for about 2 minutes.

steamed carrots will require just a light sautee since they are already cooked. buttered carrots_carrot recipes_kaluhiskitchen.com

Remove from the heat, garnish with some coriander them serve. How easy was that??!!

This was light yet savory. It makes a good accompaniment to rice dishes. I had this carrot sautee with my raisin and carrot fried rice. They can also go really well with Pilau, as an appetizer or as an accompaniment to meaty dishes such as my meatball tikka masala. They make an interesting addition to your table. If you are looking fro something unique, easy and very tasty, ensure you try this out.
