Carrot Kheer

It is Blog hop Wednesday time. This time I am paired with Farah . As I went through her collection, I fell in love with her Carrot Kheer. So here it is.

We will need

Carrots  2 cups grated
Whole milk 6 cups
Sugar 3 tbsp (adjust according to taste, this was just right for me, Honey would have preferred it sweeter)

Raisins a handful
Ghee 1 tbsp
Almonds 2-3
Saffron  a pinch 

  1. Combine the carrot and the milk in a heavy bottom pot. Cook till the carrots are soft.
  2. Once the carrots are soft, throw in the saffron and the sugar. Simmer till the sugar dissolves. 
  3. In a separate pan, heat the ghee and throw in the raisins. Cook till they plum up.Remove from heat.
  4. Pour the raisins into the simmering carrots and remove from heat.
  5. Garnish with almond shavings. Serve warm or chilled.
