Gajar ki kheer ~ Carrot kheer

To start the New year with a sweet post, here is the gajar ki kheer. me and hubby love Gajar ka halwa the most. it is always our valentine's day dessert!

Gajar ki kheer

This is the first time, iam trying kheer with these delhi carrots and i should say, kheer tasted quite good. there is a real good difference in making kheer with normal orange carrots and with these delhi red carrots. do try, if you have not tried.

gajar ki kheer

serves - 2 to 3
preparation time - less than 20 minutes


Delhi Carrot - 2 {finely grated and should measure about 1 and half cup (350 gms approx)}
Sugar - 1/4 cup
Milk - 2 cup's
Ghee - 1 tsp


Heat a pan, add ghee, and saute the grated carrot in the ghee for about 3-4 minutes, till they shrink and come together.


Add a cup of milk or till the carrot immerses and put the flame to  medium and keep stirring the carrots till they are well cooked. this may take about 5 minutes.


Once the carrots turn soft and cooked, remove from flame and cool it down. on cooling grind them into a thick puree, without adding any milk or water.


Now add grinded carrots to the pan, add the rest of the milk about 1 cup and sugar. mix well, till the sugar dissolves.


When the kheer comes to boil, switch off the flame. if you wish garnish with nut's and raisins.

I served my kheer plain and chilled.

 I reserved 2 spoons of carrot before grinding and mixed it finally when the kheer is done. strands of carrots gave a good texture to the kheer.

The kheer consistency should be thick, so add thick milk after grinding.

You may add cardamom powder and nuts towards the end.
