So lets make a dessert from this magical root vegetable.. Not Gajar ka Halwa, but a relatively easy recipe 



  • 1 large carrot
  • 4 cups milk (i.e. 1litre)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon rice flour(optional)
  • 1/4 teaspoon cardamom powder.(Optional. I like the flavour of carrots hence i avoid)


  1. Take milk in a thick bottom pan and bring it to boil. From this remove 3 tablespoon milk in a bowl.(This will be used to dissolve rice flour)
  2. Reduce the flame and simmer it stirring occasionally.
  3. Wash, peel and grate the carrot. Steam the grated carrot for about 5 minutes.
  4. Add this steamed carrot to the milk and let it cook till the milk reduces to half of its original quantity.
  5. Add the sugar(& cardamom powder, if using) and simmer until the sugar dissolves completely
  6. Now dissolve the rice flour in 3 tablespoon milk and add to the kheer, stirring continuously to avoid lumps.
  7. Cook this for another 3 minutes and its done.
  8. Serve warm or chilled .
