  1. Scrape carrots and cut into medium slices or slice in food processor. Cook carrots in boiling salted water until just tender, about five minutes, depending on thickness. Drain and rinse under cold water to stop cooking.
  2. Meanwhile, saute cumin in one tablespoon butter for about 30 seconds. Add the ginger and garlic and saute a minute longer.
  3. Combine cooked, drained carrots with cumin-garlic mixture, lemon juice, remaining butter and milk, and process in food processor with steel blade, in batches, until smooth.
  4. Season with salt and pepper. The recipe may be prepared to this point early in the day and heated gently to serve. If served immediately, heat through.
