Carrot Kheer

Before kids were born,  I used to do Carrot Kheer very often. My husband is big fan of Carrot and he likes most of the dishes made out of carrot. Those days I didn't have any helper at home.. so I needed to look for simple and easy and dish that needed less time in the kitchen. Carrot kheer is a simple dish.

Carrot - 3 Medium sized Carrots
Milk - 1 Litre (Lowfat)
Sugar - 3 Tablespoon (For me and my husband I don't add any sugar.. Sugar from condense milk is good enough)
Condense Milk - 2 tablespoon
Cashew and Almond together - 1/4 Cup
Cardamom Powder - 1/2 teaspoon


Warm 1/2 Cup of milk and soak the nuts in it for 1 - 1 and 1/2 hour
Peel the skin of the carrots and chop it (you can chop into bigger junks)
Pressure cook this by adding 2 cup of milk till 4-5 whistles. Allow it to cool . Transfer the cooked carrot (just take carrot pieces alone) with very little milk grind the carrots to smooth paste

Grind the Nuts to smooth paste. If needed add Milk used for cooking carrot and make to to smooth liquid
Boil the remaining milk for 15-20 mins in a low flame.
Add condensed milk,milk used for cooking carrot, grinded nuts paste and sugar to this. Continue to stir the milk. Let the milk boil for another 3-5 mins.  Switch off the flame.

When the milk  becomes warm add the carrot puree and cardamom powder
Serve it hot or cold with nuts on the top. I prefer to have it as cold
