  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 180°C. Line a large baking tray with baking paper. Combine the carrot, garlic, cumin, coriander, turmeric and 1 tbs oil in a large bowl. Season. Arrange the carrot mixture on lined tray. Roast, turning occasionally, for 35-40 mins or until carrot is tender. Set aside to cool completely.

    Meanwhile, brush the flatbread with a little of the remaining oil and sprinkle with dukkah. Place on a baking tray. Bake, turning, for 8-10 mins or until golden and crisp. Set aside to cool. Break into large pieces.

  3. Step 3

    Transfer the carrot mixture to a food processor. Add the tahini, lemon juice, chickpeas, yoghurt and remaining oil. Season. Process until smooth. Spoon into a bowl. Sprinkle with pomegranate seeds and serve with flatbread.
