Carrot Moongdal Kheer

We dont need any special reasons for making some special sweets whenever we feel like enjoying them na, i was craving for kheers especially the kheers prepared with dals... Without any hesitation i prepared this wonderful looking kheer yesterday just to satisfy my sweet tooth, this kheer gets ready quickly as i went for pressure cooking..Instead of cooking the dals and veggies in a pan, i pressure cooked them both together and cooked the mashed paste in milk, sweetened condesned milk with some fried nuts and ghee, definitely a delicious and quick kheer which suits prefectly for a special occasions..Adding carrots to the kheer gives definitely a beautiful colour to the kheer also healthy..I enjoyed this kheer chilled as a dessert and just loved it..Sending to Harini & Jaya's Design A Menu..

Carrot Moongdal Kheer

3nos Carrots (chopped)
1cup Yellow split moongdal (washed)
2cups Milk
1/2cup Sweetened condensed milk
Few saffron strands
Few cashew nuts
1/2tsp Cardamom powder
1tbsp Ghee

Pressure cook the chopped carrots and washed moongdal together for 3 hisses,once the steam get released mash the cooked carrot pieces and dal as thick paste..Bring boil the milk ,saffron strands with sweetened condensed milk together, add immediately this dal-carrot paste, cook for few minutes..

Meanwhile fry the cashews in ghee until they turns brown, add this fried nuts with the ghee,cardamom powder to the cooking kheer and put off the stove..Serve warm or chilled..
