Gajar ka kheer - easy recipe for a party hit

This is not gajar in kheer as you might have feared. This is cousin to the delicious 'Gajar ka halwa' and no less cousin that is. Here is the recipe from my wife who makes this well. As usual, we wont tell exact measurements. Not that we don't want to but that we don't know either. Do what feels right. Andaz apna apna :)

1. Grate 3 carrots and fry in ghee/butter (2-3 spoons) until carrot color fades (10 minutes). If you take a bite at this stage, it should not taste raw.
2. Add sugar (as needed) and stir fry for 10 minutes till the mix tightens
3. Add boiled milk (one cup milk microwaved for 2-3 minutes) and stir for 5 minutes or until the right consistency is reached.
4. Add one cardamom powdered for flavor
5. Add some condensed milk (3 spoon)
6. Add cashew and raisin fried separately in ghee
7. Serve hot or cold, you cant go wrong either way.
