Carrot Cashew Kheer

Carrot Cashew payasam from Nupur's One Hot Stove Blog is my contribution to Zlamushka's Tried and Tested event.

Just for the sake of my records, I am posting the recipe here on my blog too..


1/2 cup cashews
1/4 kg carrots
2 tbsp Ghee
7 cups of milk
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 tsp cardamom powder

Grate or cut the carrot into small pieces and fry them in ghee to let the raw smell go and it starts becoming tender. Soak the cashews in some milk for half an hour.

Boil the rest of the milk on a low flame till the quantity comes down to half.

Grind the cashews and carrots coarsely with little milk. Mix this well with the milk and add the sugar also. Cook on a low flame for some time and add the cardamom powder to it.

Serve hot or chilled..
