Carrot and milk sweet


2 cups grated carrots
2 cups milk
3 to 5 cardamom pods lightly crushed
1 tbsp ghee
2 to 3 tbsp brown sugar or granulated sugar
1 tbsp raisins
1 tbsp nuts cashews, pistachios or almonds

Put carrots, milk and cardamom pods into a heavy bottomed pan and in medium heat cook for 1/2 hour; stirring occasionally. When the milk evaporates, increase the heat a little if needed and remove from heat.


In another flat bottomed pan heat the ghee, when it is hot add the cooked carrots and stir fry for about 5 minutes until it looks like a paste and comes together, this will make the carrots a deep orange colour. Add the sugar, raisins and chopped nuts and cook for about 2 minutes.

Increase the amount of sugar, raisins and nuts to taste. Remove from heat and serve warm with cream which is optional or serve cold.
