At a glance
Heat the oil in a heavy skillet over medium heat until hot. Add the onion and chiles and saute the mixture until the onions soften and the chiles start to roast. Remove from the heat.
Pour ½ cup water into a saucepan and add the carrots and herbs and salt and pepper to taste. Bring the mixture to just under boiling, reduce the heat and simmer until the carrots are tender but still slightly crisp, about 8 to 10 minutes.
Pour the carrot mixture along with the water into a bowl, add the vinegar and stir to mix. Add the onions and jalapeños and toss to coat. Cover the bowl and refrigerate for at least 24 hours before serving.
