Carrots are used widely in India, not only as vegetable, but also to make drinks, pudding and fudge. This fudge can be refrigerated or frozen for quite a long time.

Very tasty. My food processor grating attachment made the carrots too coarse so I took my immersion blender to the mixture between step #2 and #3. My first attempt turned out a bit too wet so I had to roll the dough into balls and dip in milk powder for a kind of truffle looking thing. Next time, I'll really cook out the water in step #2. Delicious and pretty nutritious for a dessert!

  7. Garnish with nuts.
