Any kind of kheer or halwa are the perfect dessert for the festivals like diwali, holi, rakshabandhan or any other festival or special occasions. This diwali I have made carrot kheer and sharing with you guys.

There are two ways of making carrot kheer. One is using grated carrots and second is using the pureed carrots. today I am sharing the version made from grated carrots.

In south India, carrot kheer is referred as carrot payasam.

I got this carrot payasam recipe from a South Indian cookbook. I wanted to give it a try because this is the first Indian dessert recipe I came across where cardamom powder is not added in it.

When it comes to the Indian sweets, I always add green cardamom seeds powder to flavor it up. But this recipe isn’t calling for it. It calls for saffron only as a flavoring ingredient. And I was little curious to taste that. And I really liked it. I mean I loved it.
