Serves | Prep Time | Cook Time


Carrots - 6 (grated finely)
Milk - 3 cups
Sugar - 1 cup
Mawa - 1/2 cup (powdered milk)
Khoya - 3 tsp (ricotta cheese)
Almonds - 1/8 cup (chopped)
Cardamom - 5 (skinned and crushed fine)
Pistachios - 2-3 (powdered)
Ghee - 1/4 cup (clarified butter)
Raisins - 1 tsp

Boil the carrots in the milk in an open pan maintaining a low flame. Constantly stir.

When carrots are cooked, take them out and drain any excess milk.

Pour milk powder (mava), the ricotta cheese and the sugar to the cooked carrots.

In a frying pan heat the ghee, now add the carrot mixture and keep high flame until the carrot paste loses the milky texture and later turns into golden brown color.Make sure sugar has totally dissolved.

Add the raisins, cardamoms, powdered pistas and the almonds.

Heat through and serve hot.

Tastes even more yum with some vanilla Ice cream
