Carrot kheer/Carrot Payasam

carrot kheer

Carrot kheer/Carrot Payasam is a tasty and nutritious dessert prepared with Carrots.  I have used Delhi carrots to prepare this kheer for its appealing red colour.

Another yummy dessert made with Delhi carrots are  Gajar ka Halwa, I have already posted this recipe prepared with Organic Brown Sugar.

If  you don't get Delhi carrots, you can also replace with normal ones to prepare this payasam.


  • 2 Delhi Carrots (Skin peeled and Chopped)
  • 1 litre (4 cups) Milk
  • 6-7 tsp Sugar (Alter the quantity according to sweetness)
  • 1/2 tsp Cardamom powder
  • 2 tbsp Silvered Almonds


1) Pressure cook the carrots for 4-5 whistles or till soft. I have kept the chopped carrots with out adding water in a bowl and pressure cooked it.

2) After it cools, mash it well with a blender alternatively you can also use potato masher to mash them and keep aside.
