Today is a special day for MyMagicPan!! It is MyMagicPan’s 3rd blog anniversary!! I just can’t believe it’s 3 full years already!! Blogging has always been fun, in fact most of the times addictive. There have been times when I plan so much for MyMagicPan rather than other important things 😉 especially when we go on a vacation.  Whatever may be, my blog has kept me busy and happy/proud!! I might be repetitive, but it is so true that it has given me a whole new identity!! All of your comments, feedbacks, phone calls, messages & pictures truly overwhelm me!! A HUGE HUGE THANK YOU to each and everyone of you to have supported me all these years & for encouraging me in the future as well!!

To celebrate the occasion here is an easy sweet – Carrot Kheer. U know what, it is my 299th post as well!! 🙂

Let’s get to the recipe right away!!

Method:

  • Heat a pan with 2 cups of milk. Let it boil in low-medium flame so that it becomes slightly thick and reduces in amount. Add sugar, mix well and continue to boil in low flame. Stir in between so that it does not stick to the bottom of the pan.

Tips:

  1. Do not boil the Carrot Kheer for a longer time after adding the carrot paste.
  2. U can add a few tbsps of condensed milk for a much richer taste.
  3. Adjust sugar according to your taste buds. With the above measurements, It was just right.
  4. Adding cashews/almonds while cooking the carrots gives a nice thick texture to the Carrot Kheer.
