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..
3nos Carrots (chopped)
1cup Yellow split moongdal (washed)
1/2cup Sweetened condensed milk
