This is quite good, but the instructions need some clarification. I didn't know when to turn the heat on and off; I just had to do some guesswork until the carrots were soft. I used 1/2 tsp ground cardamom since that's equivalent to 5 pods, I put it in with the evaporated milk in the first boil. I used canola oil in place of ghee and left out the powdered milk (which didn't affect the taste but the texture.) It was a bit runny but tasted really good. Next time I'll add more carrots.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook evaporated milk, cadamom pods, and carrots in a heavy deep saucepan and bring it to boil then reduce heat.
  2. Cook over medium heat until all the milk gets dried up.
  3. Stir the mixture occasionally to prevent any sticking.
  4. Add sweetened condensed milk and ghee and let the mixture dry.
  5. When it is close to dry and carrots are soft add powdered milk. Mix with a little water to make a paste.
  6. Note: This can be garnished with nuts or soaked raisins or fresh cream.
