This is the first dessert I am posting in these 3 months. Rarely do I prepare sweets because of the accompanying calories with it. But once in a while it is ok to indulge in this. This kheer can be prepared in 10 minutes. It not only takes less time but also tastes yummy. This can be served hot or cold though I love it cold. It tastes great when taken cold.Today let us learn how to prepare carrot kheer following this very easy and delicious recipe.
Carrots – 2 medium sizes
Milk -1/2 liter (2 1/2 cups of milk)
Sugar – 4-5 tbsp
Ghee -1 tsp
Cashews – 10
Almonds – 10
Cardamom – 2
Saffron – a pinch (optional)
Soak cashews and almonds in water for 3-4 hours. Remove almonds skin and grind both coarsely.
Grate carrots finely. (use the blade with small holes)
Heat a tsp of ghee and fry the carrots till the raw smell goes.
Boil milk and keep stirring till it reduces a little in volume.
Then add the fried carrot and the cashew-almond paste.
Cook for a few more minutes.
Add sugar and let it dissolve. Remove from flame.
Add cardamom powder and saffron (mix saffron with a little milk and add).

Enjoy! See you again with a wonderful post. Till then it is adieu from Padhu
