Carrot with Dill Greens - A side dish

Today's recipe is a vegetable side-dish with a combination of carrots and dill greens. I love this recipe where the sweetness of crunchy carrots gets complemented by the pleasant aroma of dill leaves, and the taste enhanced by spices and lemon juice. The blend of orange and green colors makes it very eye catching, that is bound to attract everyone's attention. A nutritious side dish that is very easy to prepare and gets done in 10-15 minutes time.

Doesn't it look colorful. Lets go to this recipe now.
