Put the garlic, cumin, paprika, oil and 3 tbsp water in a saucepan, stir together and boil for 1 minute.
Add the carrots to the pan, pour over 300ml boiling water and add a pinch of salt. Cover and cook on a low heat for 20–25 minutes or until all the liquid has evaporated and the carrots are tender. If any liquid remains, uncover the saucepan to let it cook off.
Tip the carrots into a serving dish and scatter over the chopped parsley. Garnish with a sprig of parsley, if liked.
*If possible, use flat-leaf parsley, which has a better flavour than curly parsley, and add a few chopped walnuts. Chopped fresh mint would also marry well with the carrots. *For an extra spicy flavour, you could also sprinkle the cooked carrots with some cumin seeds, toasted in a dry frying pan for 1–2 minutes. *Serve as a side dish with a spicy main course, such as Moroccan Braised Chicken (recipe on this website).
