This is a fast mid-week number that you can throw in the oven and leave to do its own thing. Serve with toasted pita bread, yogurt with mint leaves, chunks of cucumber, and a hearty grain, such as barley or red rice, for extra texture.
10 shallots, peeled and halved if they are larger than 3/4 inch
4 tablespoons grapeseed oil
3/4 inch piece ginger root, peeled and julienned
4 teaspoons cumin seeds
4 tablespoons coriander seeds
2 mild red chilies, such as Anaheim, seeded and finely sliced
1 tablespoon sugar
Combine all the ingredients in a roasting dish and mix so that the vegetables are coated with the oil and seeds. Bake for 25 minutes.
