Carrot Milk/Carrot Kheer

Tuesday, January 13, 2009

There is only one difference between a long life and a good dinner: that, in the dinner, the sweets come last - Robert Louis Stevenson.

Think of Deserts…ummmm my mouth is watering!

There are a lot of restaurants that I like only for their desert section.In Bangalore(India) one such amazing place is “Frescos” in Cunningham Road. A friend of mine took me there and I fell in love with their deserts. This place has a separate room…yes a room only for deserts:P Variety of deserts are displayed,You gota go there and then make your choice. Once done,they serve it with a great combination of sauce/nuts. The way it is served/presented is a treat for the eyes and makes it all the more tempting.

I’ve always ended up making Halwa’s, Jamuns,pastries or Kheer for deserts.I had enough carrots at home, used a few of them for making Pulao and the rest for making Carrot milk or call it Carrot kheer….its a rich,tasty and a perfect drink!



As a kid, I hated carrots. Somehow the concept of eating raw vegetables never appealed to me. I know eating raw veggies such as Raddish,Beetroot,Cabbage etc are healthy, but I am not a great fan of it!

Ingredients:

Carrot – 6
Cardamom powder – a pinch
Milk – 3 cups
Sugar – ¾ cup(increase it as per ur taste)
Cashew Powder – 2tbsp(Plain Cashews coarsely grounded)
Cream – ½ cup

Method :-

1.Peel the carrots ,pressure cook/boil them in water until soft and grind to a fine paste.
2.Bring milk to boil,add the carrot paste,sugar and cardamom powder.
3. Add Cashewnut powder & allow it to boil for about 8-10mins, stirring it occasionally.
4. The milk would thicken a li’l,add the cream and switch of the flame.
Serve it hot/cold.



Personally I like it cold. You can also add chopped Pistachios/Almond or even Kesar.P has a very sweet tooth,so I always make it extra sweet.You can increase/decrease based on your liking.



This will be definetly loved by kids,hence sending this one for Preety's Cooking for Kids(milk/milk products) originally started by Sharmi from Neivedyam
