Cooking tricks from experienced housewives:

  • It is advised to add vegetable oil to the dish when heated. At the same time, it is important not to bring it to a boil so that it does not release harmful substances in the dish and does not make the carrots bitter.
  • Add garlic immediately after the oil. Otherwise, it may change its color to green in the future.
