Carrot Cream

My lil princess was down with fever and with all other things happening around it completely slipped from my mind that today is Wednesday and I was supposed to post a recipe as part of BHW.

This month I am paired with Vidhya Jayadeep of Vidhyas good eats. She has a good collection of recipes and I started bookmarking them left - right centre. For the first event I wanted to try out the red pepper and tomato soup, but this simple and tasty recipe caught my eye :) I have made very minor modifications to the recipe..

For carrot cream you need

Carrots - 2 cups diced
Milk - 3 cups
Sugar - 3/4 cup or as required
Cardamom - 1 tsp
Cashew - 2 tbsp
Raisin - 2 tbsp
Ghee - 1 tsp

Pressure cook the carrot in 2 cups of milk and sugar (4 whistles)
Once cool puree with remaining milk
Mix in the cardamom
Heat the ghee and roast the cashew and raisin
Add into the Carrot cream
I served it at the room temp.. It tasted very good :)

This is going to be a regular in my house from now on..

I am sending this to Blog Hop Wednesdays hosted by Radhika of Tickling palates and "ABC Series: DESSERTS" hosted by Ramya
