  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F. If desired, line a 15x10x1-inch baking pan with foil and set it aside.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the grapeseed oil (or peanut oil), sugar, mustard seeds, turmeric, cumin, ginger, coriander, salt, cinnamon, and cayenne pepper.
  3. In an extra-large bowl, combine the chicken, carrots, cauliflower, and garbanzo beans. Drizzle the oil mixture over the ingredients and stir gently to coat them evenly.
  4. Transfer the mixture to the prepared baking pan, spreading it out in an even layer.
  5. Bake the dish, uncovered, for approximately 30 minutes, or until the chicken is no longer pink and the carrots are crisp-tender and starting to brown.
  6. Drizzle 1 tablespoon of lime juice over the chicken and vegetable mixture.
  7. Sprinkle fresh cilantro leaves and, if desired, slivered almonds or dry roasted peanuts on top.
  8. Serve the roasted Indian chicken, vegetables, and chickpeas with lime wedges on the side.
