      DdedTwo medium carrots yielded one cup of grated carrots. 6 ounces of oil is the same as 3/4 cup. Instead of grating the carrots, I chopped them finely in my food processor. Removed them, didn't clean the processor bowl, added all but the last three ingredients and processed for 30 seconds. Added the last three ingredients and pulsed three times. Worked well and was fast.
