Carrot or Gajar ki Barfi - II


If you are a big fan of sweets like me than you have to try this , it's a deliclous carrot barfi recipe and is sure to satisfy your sweet tooth.I am glad that i tried it, only one regret though "Why didn't i double the recipe while making:)"..This recipe will make 8-10 pieces which in my house is gone in one day..

You can find another version of this barfi here


Recipe Source here

Ingredients;-

1/4 cup heavy cream
2 cups grated carrots (gajar)
1/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
1/4 cup granulated sugar or to taste
1/4 cup unsalted butter
1/2 cup khoya or milk powder
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground cardamom
1/8 teaspoon grated nutmeg
1/4 cup unsalted cashew halves
3 drops rose essence



Procedure:-

1) In a heavy saucepan combine heavy cream and carrots. Bring the carrot mixture to a full boil, stirring constantly, and reduce heat. Cook over medium heat stirring frequently, until all the liquid has been evaporated, approximately 35 to 55 minutes.
2) Add sugar, 1 tablespoon butter, khoya, cardamom and freshly grated nutmeg and mix well with the carrot mixture.
3) Cook, stirring constantly, 10 to 20 minutes, or until the carrot mixture is quite thick like soft cookie dough. Add more butter if desired. Remove from the heat and add the remaining ingredients. Stir to mix thoroughly.
4) Lightly grease an 8-inch round baking pan (or stainless steel thali) and pour carrot-mixture into the baking pan and spread the mixture evenly using a heatproof metal spatula. Sprinkle thinly sliced nuts of choice on top if desired. Let it cool completely before cutting. Cut into diamond shapes to serve. Refrigerate.

Note: The size of grated carrots should resemble long grain rice or orzo or little larger

These look good, and I like that they are a somewhat healthful sweet. I wonder if I could use olive oil instead of butter?
Oh, and I like the traditional diamond cut too. Nice Preety!

Preety said...

thanks all you guys fro your sweet comments..

Joie de vivre:- that's my sweet daughter in my profile picture..

Stella:- i guess you can use olive oil too..recipe calls for about 1/4 cup butter but i actually used only 1 Tbsp so i don't think it will make a big difference..
