When i saw Anu's Carrot Kheer, i instantly started craving for it. To make it worse (or better, i should say! :)), it had almonds in it and i had to have it immediately. It was so easy too.
Am glad i didn't wait to make it. It was super yummy! I pretty much stuck to the recipe except that i increased the quantity of almonds and reduced the milk to get thicker and creamier texture.I used blanched almonds.
Carrots - 2
Milk - 1 cup
Blanched Almonds - 1/2 cup
Sugar - 2 spoons
Soak almonds in milk (just enough to cover them) for about 15 minutes . Wash carrots, peel and pressure cook. Let it cool. Add carrots, almonds, sugar, milk (I used boiled and chilled milk) in a blender and blend until smooth. Serve chilled. Cardamom is optional. My first son doesn't like cardamom, so i didn't add it. I liked the colour of this kheer so much, so didn't want to add any nuts or raisins to it either. I added only 2 spoons of sugar as both me and my husband don't like it, if it is too sweet. Pls. adjust the quantity of sugar as per your taste.
