Using a deep sauté pan, add 1 Tbsp of olive oil and place over medium heat. Add carrots, salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until carrots have softened (~6-8 minutes). (Note: Make sure to just soften carrots, not actually brown them.)
Stir in garlic, cumin, coriander, ginger and chili powder. Continue cooking, stirring often, for 2-3 more minutes.
Add water. Bring to a simmer, cover and reduce heat to low. Let cook, stirring occasionally, until carrots are tender (~15 minutes).
Remove from heat and transfer carrots into a food processor. Pulse several times, or until carrots are mostly smooth. Stir in lemon juice and remaining 1 Tbsp of olive oil. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Before serving, garnish with minced cilantro. Serve with Saffron Road Chickbean Crisps.
