If you like carrot cake, you are going to love this. If you hate carrot cake you might still need to try this...its an order. Eat your carrots! Hehehe don't worry I was just trying to remind you of mommy! Sorry about the lack of food-photography skills..this was taken in a rush before the eid prayers.
So here it goes..

You Need:
  1. 1 kg carrots ( grated, A food processor can be your life saver)
  2. 1 1/2  litres Milk
  3. 1/2 cup condenced Milk (optional)
  4. 1 and a half cups sugar
  5. 4-5 cardammom seeds freshly ground
  6. Kewra essence ( i didnt have it though)
  7. Nuts, sultana to garnish
How To:
  • Put the milk to boil, add the grated carrots when it starts boiling.  Add sugar and cardammom.
  • Let it simmer on a medium heat for 25 mins.
  • Stir occassionally..until the carrots become soft.
  • I like to run the stab mixer in it at the end to give it a nice texture and consistency.
  • Add the condenced milk.
  • Turn the heat off when thick,round bubbles show on the top
  • Let it cool at room temperature first and then refrigerate it. Serve cool,garnished with dry roasted almonds, crushed pistachios and cashews.

Makes enough to serve 8-9 sweet-toothed people:)
