250 gm carrots
4 cup milk
1 pinch of saffron strands
1/2 cup white sugar
2 tablespoon ground almonds
1/8 teaspoon ground cardamom

Directions: How to Cook Gajjar Kheer (Carrot Pudding)

Wash and scrape the carrots and grate them coarsley. In a large heavy saucepan bring milk to the boil, then take out 2 tablespoons of the boling milk and soak the saffron strands in it.

Add the grated carrots to boiling milk and cook until carrots are soft and the mixture thickens. This takes about 30 minutes or longer. Add sugar, almonds, ground cardamom and the saffron soaking in the milk. Stir until sugar dissolves, then cook, stirring occasionally until the mixture is the consistency of a creamy rice pudding.

Serve warm or cold.

sounded like a good recipe, but milk is not usually boiled unless you're scalding it also doesn't retain vitamins and will have a tendency to burn then stick to the saucepan. Simmering the milk may be a better idea.
