    Preethi, I usually don’t think of making carrots on their own as a side dish. This butter glazed chilli garlic carrots look so tempting. Making some Indo Chinese rice and am sure this will pair well with your side dish.

      The butter-glazed chilli garlic carrots sound amazing, bursting with flavours! I don’t think I would ever have thought of using carrots like this. Would love to try out this recipe some time, maybe as a side dish for fried rice.
