Carrot Kheer – Carrot Payasam Recipe

Carrot Kheer

Carrot Kheer – This quick healthy dessert is made by cooking carrots in the boiling milk, blending them together and finally flavoring with cardamom, saffron & nuts. This can be served both warm & cold. I believe carrots have universal fans & making dessert from would make your meal a feast. This root vegetable is naturally sugary & delicious which reduces the consumption of sugar in making kheer.

Goodness of Carrot:

1) Carrot is rich in beta-carotene which helps in improving the vision and protects the central nervous system against aging.

2) It would provide healthier skin from both inside and outside.

3) It is a great body cleanser as it helps in removing the toxins from this body.

4) As this carrot kheer is made of carrots with milk, you would get a good load of calcium too.

Carrot Kheer Recipe


Carrots – 1 cup (heaped)

Milk – 2 cups

Sugar – 1/4 cup

Cardamom – 2-3

Ghee fried Cashews – Few  (for garnish)

Saffron – 7-10 strands (optional)

Orange food color – Pinch (optional)

Preparation Method:

  1. Wash, peel and cut the carrots in cubes.IMG_1965  2. Add milk and carrots together in a pan (preferably non-stick).

IMG_19683. Allow the carrots to cook in the boiling milk for 20-25 mins in medium flame.

IMG_19714. Let it cool and grind the mixture in the blender or mixer grinder with cardamom, sugar & food color(optional).IMG_19735. Garnish with cashews & saffron and enjoy serving warm or chilled 🙂



  1. Coating the pan with ghee would prevent milk from getting burnt at the bottom.
  2. Avoid using food-color. Carrot kheer itself would have a nice pleasing color.
  3. Want vegan version of this Carrot kheer? Don’t worry! Just use almond milk instead of milk, it would taste great.
  4. Want quick version of  this? Just pressure cook the carrots for 2 whistles and blend with milk and other ingredients. But, if the carrots are cooked in milk, taste would be better.
