Carrot Burfi - A Indian Dessert

Wishing all the wonderful ladies a Happy Women's Day :). To celebrate this day I present Carrot Burfi. 
Carrot halwa is one of the classic indian dessert  as we all know. When this halwas is simmered for a few extra minutes and placed on a greased plate it turns to be Carrot Burfi. My Ammsta makes Carrot Khadi a little harder to this and i was supposed to do it but stopped here as both my kids woke up ;). 
Here is the recipe for CARROT BURFI

  • 2 cups carrot shredded
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/3rd  cup cream
  • ½  cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons clarified butter or ghee
  • ¼ th teaspoon cardamom powder
  • 2 tablespoons chopped pistachio to garnish

  1. In a large non stick  pan bring the milk, cream and carrots to boil over medium high heat.  Do stir occasionally, making sure the mixture does not burn. After milk comes to boil reduce the heat to medium.
  2. Let carrot cook for about 40 minutes(making sure you keep stirring the mixture), until carrot mix become like a lumpy dough. Keep stirring and at the same time keep scraping the sides. 
  3. Add sugar, Cook for about 20 minutes stirring continuously. Mix should be consistency of soft dough, add ghee, cardamom and keep stirring for about another 10 minutes.
  4. The mixture will form into a single lump.
  5. Transfer mixture to the greased plate and press firmly into a square shape
  6. For garnishing just sprinkle pistachio all over and press firmly with the spoon.
  7. Now just give slight cuts about ½ inch square pcs.
  8. Let the burfi sit for at least two hour in the fridge before removing the slice from the plate.

Happy Cooking,
