Carrot Kheer (Carrot Payasam) | Easy Desserts

Carrot Kheer is my fav...As I've mentioned so many times, I just love carrots, be it carrot juice or carrot milkshake or this kheer I am very tempted. 
Carrot Kheer Recipe
Ingredients:
  • Carrot - 4 medium sized
  • Milk - 2 cups
  • Sugar - 4 tsp
  • Ghee - 1 tsp
  • Cashew - 2 tsp broken
  • Saffron - 2 strands
  • Cardamom powder - 1/2 tsp (optional)

Carrot Kheer Recipe
Method:
1.Heat ghee in a pan, add the cashews and fry them to golden brown and keep aside.Pressure cook carrots for 3 whistles and grind it to a smooth paste. Keep aside.

Carrot Kheer Recipe - Step1
The milk tends to absorb the carrots very well and since its simmered and cooked, the milk is thickened which gives a yummy taste.

I like it cold and hubby likes it hot. I can never forget the incident when I tried this for the first time, I just tried only for 1 cup of glass. I gave hubby to taste it which he thought it was offered to him fully and enjoyed it completely only later he realised noone else even tasted the kheer so whenever I make this I pull his leg with this incident :)
