Taste of India Roasted Root Vegetables

Taste of India Roasted Root Vegetables

Though not a traditional Indian dish, since there is no sauce, the spices used on these roasted vegetables may remind you of Indian flavors. Your favorite recipe for tikka masala would be nice to serve with this, along with some white rice and naan. Dial back the heat, if you like, or bring it, with an extra dash or two of cayenne--your choice!
