To prepare the dressing, combine the first 8 ingredients in a small bowl; stir mixture with a whisk.
To prepare the salad, combine carrot and next 5 ingredients (carrot through chickpeas) in a large bowl. Pour 1/2 cup dressing over carrot mixture, tossing gently to coat. Place 2 cups lettuce on each of 6 plates, and drizzle each serving with about 1 tablespoon dressing. Top each serving with 1 1/3 cups carrot mixture.
This is a great entree salad - wonderful curry flavor, loved the chickpeas and shredded carrot, and the best part by far is the unexpected little golden raisins. I would prepare a little differently tossing the romaine with half the dressing before plating, to better coat the greens. Either that or nix the romaine all together. I'd also nix the bell pepper. Otherwise, wonderful.
