Spiced Carrot Pudding
Today I decided to do something with carrots, not a soup or a salad but a yummy dessert.
A carrot pudding, full of goodies!
Another easy to make recipe for you and your family to enjoy!
5 large carrots, peeled and grated
half can of condensed milk
2 cups milk
1/2 teaspoon cardamom
1/4 teaspoon saffron
handful of currants
handful of nuts (I used a mixture of cashew, pistachio and almonds)
1 tablespoon butter
2 tablespoons sugar
Melt the butter in a pan, add the carrots and stir them till they are softer.
Add the milk, spices and currants.
Add the nuts (but keep aside part of it for garnishing)
Bring to the boil, lower the heat and let simmer for 30 minutes or until the pudding is thick.
Stir from time to time.
Serve in bowls and let cool
Garnish with crushed nuts and a bit of saffron.
Remember, "from carrots you get beautiful eyes",
Haha.. I remember my mom saying this when I was a kid.
Fact is they are good for the eyes as they improve your vision.
Have a lovely day.
