Carrot Kheer

This is one of my favourite recipes. It is a easy and quick to make recipe.. a rich and healthy one too. The kheer turns out to a wonderful yellow colour, that u can make believe anyone it is badam kheer. I have made this for parties and all my friends love it. I hope u will love this too.



Ingredients

Carrot- 1 large cut into thin rounds
Cashews- 8 to 10
Almond essence- ¼ tsp
Almonds or cashews chopped into tiny bits- 3 tsp
Milk-3 cups
Sugar- ½ cup or according to taste.

Method

Pressure cook the carrots and cashews upto 3 whistles.
When cool grind to a fine paste.


Add sugar to milk and stir it well till it dissolves(u don’t need to heat it up ,can just add to cold milk itself ). Now add the ground paste too. Mix well and add the chopped nuts and essence.
Serve chilled.

Tips

U can add saffron soaked in milk.
U can add cardomom powder instead of almond essence
U can add milk more or less according to the thickness u want.
