Carrot & Apple Kheer / Kheer Recipes

As a food blogger, I am very passionate on trying new dishes either by intuition or by referring other bloggers. When we try something new, we may not taste success every time. Sometimes that experiment may turn into disaster and our testers (partners) may suffer :( ..  When the experiment turns good the joy of happiness is immense. This time I was trying a special dish with apple and carrot. Both are bit sweet :) So I planned a Kheer with apple and carrot. the result was excellent. Since this is experiment I cooked only less quantity. This time my partner did regression testing and he left very little for me.. Yes.. He drunk almost all kheer in the name of testing. Good thing is I manage to take couple of photos :) 



Ingredients :

Carrot
3 (Medium size)
Apple
1
Milk
2 cups
Sugar
Less than ½ cup
Cardamom powder
½ tsp
Vermicelli
3 tbsp
Cashew
5
Raisins
1 tsp
Ghee
1 tsp
Saffron
Few strands


Steps :

  • Wash and peel the carrots,cook with enough water till soft.

  • Once get cooled make a puree.

  • Heat a tsp of ghee in pan fry the cashews and raisins till golden yellow and keep aside.In same pan add vermicelli fry till golden yellow.


  • Add milk in saucepan bring to boil,then add vermicelli and cook for 5 mins then add pureed carrots and cook in low flame for 10 mins.
  • Then add sugar,cardamom powder and saffron strands mix well and let it simmer for another 10 mins or until the milk has reduced and thickens a bit.

  • Meanwhile wash and peel the apple and grate well in grater.

  • Lastly add the grated apple and roasted nuts mix well and switch off the flame.


Notes :
