Method Prep:5min › Cook:30min › Ready in:35min
Boil the carrot till very tender, then drain.
Combine carrot and 1/3 of the milk and puree till smooth. Place in a saucepan along with the rest of the milk. Bring to the boil, then reduce heat to very low and stir continuously for 20 to 30 minutes.
Add sugar and simmer for 5 more minutes. Ladle the kheer into serving dishes, or one large dish, and garnish with the nuts. Serve warm or chill for 3 to 4 hours in the fridge to enjoy cold.
If the kheer isn't as thick as you'd like, add 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of cornflour diluted in the same amount of water. Stir into the hot kheer and simmer for 5 minutes, or till thickened.
