Carrot Kheer

Carrot Kheer

            I was a poor eater once and did hate a lot to eat veggies.My mom tried every possible way to sneak veggies into sumptuous dishes and that made me to eat veggies.Carrot is one such veggie that I did hate a lot despite lot of advices from others.I very well knew that carrot is rich in Vitamin A and a good protector for eye vision.

            I never liked the fresh smell of carrots and every time my mom used to boil carrots to hide the raw and fresh smell.Carrot kheer is one recipe which I started liking and consequently I started to like the veggie.

            I was attending one of my family's get together functions and the refreshing drink served was carrot kheer.I never knew that it was carrot kheer and thought it must be some other drink and when I casually enquired one of my sisters-in-law, she said it was carrot kheer.I asked for the recipe and immediately she told me.From then on I started preparing it and many a times I packed it to office in tupper ware...So by this time you all can understand how much I love this drink.Here goes the recipe.
