Carrot kheer

This is my 100th post. A sweet century.

Carrot - 4
Badam - 10
Sugar - 1/2 cup
Milk - 1 litre
Cardamom - 4 to 5
Broken cashews - 2 tsp.
Raisins - 10
Raw camphor(pachai karpooram) - a pinch
Ghee - 1 tsp.


Soak badam in hot water for half-an-hour. Take out, and peel it.

Peel the carrots and pressure cook for two whistles. When cool, grind it to a paste alongwith sugar, badam and cardamoms.

Transfer the paste to a vessel, add boiled milk and stir it well.

Roast, raisins and broken cashews in ghee and add it to the payasam. Crush a pinch of pachai karpooram to it finally and mix well. Can serve it hot or chilled.
