carrot burfi recipe | gajar ki barfi recipe | how to make carrot barfi with detailed photo and video recipe. basically an easy carrot based sweet dessert pudding recipe prepared mainly with fresh grated carrots. the recipe of carrot barfi has very similar texture and colour to the traditional carrot halwa or gajrela but has a thick consistency and shaped into square shapes. the sweet is mainly prepared during special occasions like diwali, holi or even raksha bandhan festival.
gajar ki barfi recipecarrot burfi recipe | gajar ki barfi recipe | how to make carrot barfi with step by step photo and video recipe. to be honest carrot burfi recipe is a extended version of popular gajar ka halwa with more thick consistency. also the cooking time is considerably more in gajar ki burfi as the moisture has to be dried properly before shaping it. but the end result is worth a wait.

traditionally, carrot sweets are mainly prepared with milk, condensed milk, full cream and milk solids like khoya or mawa. this makes carrot sweets like carrot halwa or gajrela more rich, creamier and moist desserts. but with the carrot burfi, i have used the combination of fresh full cream milk with milk powder. the rationale behind using milk powder is to cut the moisture so that it becomes dry and easy to shape into fudges or barfi. the recipe can also extended by adding grated coconut, khoya which also helps to absorb moisture and eventually to shape it. moreover adding coconut also brings a different dimension with respect to flavour and taste. but carrot coconut burfi is totally a different recipe and i would be posting it as separate recipe soon.

carrot burfi recipefurthermore, some important tips and recommendations for a perfect and rich carrot burfi recipe. firstly, i heavily recommend to use freshly grated carrots to this recipe for better result. also i would heavily recommend to peel the skin of carrots before grating it. basically it would help to get more dark and rich red colour to the gajar ki barfi. secondly, you have to continuously stir the carrot mixture while it on the pan. otherwise, it may stick to the bottom and may burn and spoil the colour and texture of barfi. finally, you can also prepare the carrot burfi with evaporated milk or condensed milk in the place of fresh milk. ideally half cup of condensed milk should be good for this recipe.
