Roasting root vegetables is a tradition that spans the globe. Here’s a delicious and fragrant Indian take, where beets, carrots, and turnips are tossed with Indian spices and finished with lime juice. Not boring!
- Preheat the oven to 425ºF. While the oven preheats, toss all of the diced root vegetables with the oil, salt, cumin, Kashmiri chile powder, and turmeric.
- Place the vegetables on a baking tray in a single layer, using two baking trays if necessary.
- Roast for 40-45 minutes or until edges are crisp and brown and the vegetables are tender.
- Toss the roasted vegetables with lime juice, chaat masala, onions, and cilantro and garnish with pomegranate seeds.
