Carrot burfi is a popular Indian sweet made with carrots, milk, sugar, and ghee (clarified butter). It is a delicious and rich dessert that is often served during festivals or special occasions.

Ingredients

  • Carrot big – 2 Nos (Grated finely)

  • Sugar equal to the measure of the carrot gratings

  • Ghee – 4 or 5 tablespoons

  • Cashew Nuts – 8 to 10

  • Cardamom 4 large – powdered

Directions

  • In a kadai with a thick bottom, heat one or two tablespoons of ghee over medium heat. Add the grated carrot and sauté until its raw smell disappears. In a separate pan, fry the cashew nuts in a little ghee until golden, then set aside.
  • In the same kadai, dissolve sugar in water (for 1 cup of sugar, use ¼ cup of water) and bring it to a boil until it reaches a one-string consistency. Stir in the sautéed carrot, mixing well.
  • Gradually add ghee while continuously stirring the mixture, until it pulls away from the sides of the pan. Incorporate the fried cashew nuts and powdered cardamom into the mixture, blending thoroughly.
  • Pour the final mixture into a greased plate and allow it to set briefly before cutting it into your desired shape.
  • Note: One large carrot should yield about 1 to 1.5 cups of fine gratings, which will result in approximately four pieces of carrot burfi. With the given measurements, you should expect to get 8 to 10 small pieces.
