Indulged in creamy, velvety and rich tasting visual delight i.e carrot kheer right now. After devouring a moderate (not filling), simple South Indian meal, this peach colored carrot kheer is amazingly awesome. It’s a kind of super nutritious dessert with carrot and almonds but the little sugar involved in it hold me back from declaring as REAL SUPER food.
Such half-way healthy dessert always rescue me at times when my kids demand for snacks at random hours. Kids are kids, who demand for snacks or edibles as ongoing basis. So I do cook and keep some desserts like dry fruits laddu or some lentil salads or it can be a soup too. It’s my motherly perspective of feeding kids with food that are healthy plus delicious. Carrot kheer fits in here offering nutrients plus sweet taste both to my sweet heart kids.
Carrot is basically peeled and sliced and then cooked to tender along with almonds plus water. It can take few minutes to be soft on stove top but I relaxed pressure cooking them. The cooked ingredients then travel to mixer grinder to get pureed. This carrot-almond puree has to be sauteed till the raw smell of carrot vanishes. Then combine milk, sugar and cardamom powder and let it boil in simmer. Carrot kheer appealing to the eyes and incredibly tasty to your mouth is ready in half an hour.
