Don’t hate me for my obsession with red carrots. I use them as salad, vegetable, pulav and even in breakfast as Gaajar(carrot) ki kheer. Yes, you heard it right…..Gaajar ki Kheer in breakfast!
The concept of preparing carrot kheer for breakfast, I adopted after my marriage. During winter season my mother in law prepares for breakfast Gaajar(carrot) ki kheer and serves it hot. Such a nutritious breakfast and yummy too. At my mom’s house we were not particular to have it during breakfast only. For foodies like my siblings and me any time of the day was fine😀
If you have food processer grating carrots becomes very easy and one doesn’t hesitate to prepare. But if you are very busy in the morning then grate carrots in the evening, boil them with milk for 3-4 minutes and switch off heat. In the morning finish cooking the kheer completely and serve it hot during winter season.
Recently, I prepared it during Shivaratri festival as it was a fasting day and we are not supposed to eat any kind of grains
And with this post I will stop my red carrots recipes series till next winter. So try it once………
Carrots 300gm (peeled)
Sugar between 150-200gm(200gm is too sweet so adjust)
Mixed dry fruits 2tbsp
Cardamom powder 1/4tsp
Cut the both ends of carrots and wash them. Peel carrots and again wash in running water.
Keep the milk for boiling and start grating peeled carrots.
By now milk would have boiled, so add grated carrots in it. Keep the flame on sim and let it boil for 40-45 minutes.
Keep on stirring in between and scraping milk from the sides of the vessel. Otherwise, in the end it is very difficult to clean the vessel.
After 40 minutes, add sugar, mix it properly and let it boil for 10 more minutes.
Switch off gas. Pour kheer in a serving bowl. Add cardamom powder and chopped nuts and serve hot.
There are other varieties of kheer recipes also in the blog, take a look at them too…
