It's always pleasing to grow carrots in the garden here. It is interesting to read how popular they are in India because many of the dishes served by Indian restaurants here in the UK don't appear to include them.

it is surprising to know that some of Indian restaurants are not including carrots in their dishes, generally here in India, carrot is always appeared in salad with cabbage, cucumber and onion...

You reminded me of a time when we went to Dublin ,Ireland ,when in a restaurant we asked for a portion of raw carrot with our meal. The waiter went 'over the top' he brought a huge heap of carrots that would have fed the whole restaurant.

I love that there's finally something healthier and affordable for the poor than apples for the wealthy. Usually, the inexpensive stuff is the least expensive here.
