Carrot Kheer - Carrot Payasam

Carrot Kheer - Carrot Payasam, this is a rich and delicious dessert that can be made at home easily. Actually, I was planning to make this for a very long time and only I got to try it as I had some left over carrots in my fridge. I have heard of this dessert from many people but have never tried before. This is the first time I made it and it came out super awesome. 


When I surfed the web for the recipe, they had two versions. The first method is to puree the carrot and make the kheer. And the second method is to grate and add the carrot. But, in this dish I have added both pureed carrots as well as grated carrot. I cannot explain you how delicious it tasted. You must definitely try this...

Delicious and Yummy Carrot Kheer - Carrot Payasam is ready to serve. Garnish it with sliced almonds and serve hot or cold. I prefer cold.


Notes
  1. I have made this kheer in little thicker consistency. If you do not want it so thick, you can add little more milk and reduce the cooking time for reducing the milk.
  2. Remember that we are adding sweetened condensed milk, so adjust the sugar level accordingly.
  3. You can add cardamom powder if you like, I have not added in this recipe.
  4. Mix the chopped almonds in the kheer when you eat, it will give you a nice crunchy twist to the kheer.
