Carrot pudding Recipe

By VIkky

Instead of using khoya, i have cooked the carrots in milk, to bring about the same creamy taste and texture, yet save on the time taken to make the khoya. Voila, carrot pudding is ready in minutes.

  • 2 cups thickly grated carrot
  • 1 tbsp ghee
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • 4 tbsp sugar
  • 4 tbsp mava (khoya)
  • 1 tbsp raisins (kismis)
  • 1 tbsp chopped almonds (badam)
  • 1/2 tsp cardamom (elaichi) powder
  1. Heat the ghee in a pressure cooker; add the carrots and sauté on a medium flame for 4 to 5 minutes, while stirring continuously.
  2. Add the milk, mix well and pressure cook for 1 whistle.
  3. Allow the steam to escape before opening the lid.
  4. Transfer into a broad non-stick pan, add the sugar, mix well and cook on a high flame for 5 to 7 minutes, while stirring continuously.
  5. Add the mava, mix well and cook for more 1 to 2 minutes, while stirring continuously.
  6. Add the raisins, almonds and cardamom powder and cook for another 1 minute.
  7. Serve hot or warm.
