Hi there! Have been busy from past few weeks and havent been able to post recipes for dishes that I have been making. Am back after a fun filled and tiring weekend with another post for a sweet dish on the occasion of Tamil New Year...
எல்லோருக்கும் இனிய தமிழ் புத்தாண்டு நல்வாழ்த்துக்கள் :)


Carrots: 8-10 nos.
Cashews: 10-15 (whole)
Sugar: 2 cups (adjust as per your taste)
Milk: 2 small glasses
Cardamom powder: 1 tsp
Cinnamon stick: 1/4 inch
Cloves: 3-4 nos.
Ghee: 1 tblspn
Cashews (broken) and Raisins: 2 tblspns


Soak the whole cashews in warm milk for atleast 15 mins.
Pressure cook the carrots. Grind the carrots and cashews into a smooth paste in a mixer.
Boil the milk in a thick bottomed vessel and add the sugar.
Add the carrot and cashew paste. Add the cinnamon stick and cloves into this and boil for about 3-5 mins.
Remove from heat and add the cardamom powder.
The cinnamon stick and cloves were added just for flavour and you can remove this from the kheer now (just spoon them out).
Garnish with the cashews and raisins roasted in ghee.
Delicious carrot kheer is ready.
May the New Year bring you loads of Happiness, Prosperity and Good fortune....
Ciao till next time...Have fun! Vidya.

Great recipe! With Cashews I also added half cup of pistachio paste. I cooked it in Vanilla Soy Milk and added some rose essence to it. Twisted your recipe a little bit with what the additions I had in my Kitchen. It came out very well! Thanks a lot.
