Carrot kheer is an easy, delicious and chilled dessert with carrots, milk and dry fruits. It is an excellent dessert for the parties and potlucks.
I made this kheer for my kid’s birthday party, and it is a huge hit among his little friends. The Beautiful orange color kheer attracted the kids. Whenever I buy a big bag of carrots from Costco, after using it in different recipes always ended up in making this kheer. If you would like your kheer to be creamier add in some Cashew nuts paste or blanched Almond paste. I used whole milk though it is high in calorie, it gives nice r nd creamy kheer. I used mixed nuts like Pistachios, Almonds and Cashewnuts for garnishing. Of course, it is purely your option to add your favorite nuts.
Chill it in a refrigerator and garnish it with chopped nuts and raisins, before serving.

In a separate saucepan heat the milk. When the milk is warm add the carrot puree and allow to boil for 10 - 15 minutes until it becomes creamy. Keep stirring in between to avoid the milk getting burned.
