payasam or particularly the kheer recipes are very common dessert served in most of the indian households. most of the time it is either made with soaked rice or with roasted semiya or also known as vermicelli. but the kheer can also be made with grated carrots which makes it a healthy and rich dessert recipe. the carrot kheer recipe is very similar to the carrot halwa or gajar ka halwa but made with more milk content. in addition in this recipe, i have added instant khoya which not only adds texture to this kheer but also makes it more rich and creamier. generally, the kheer recipe is simply made with thick evaporated sweetened milk but adding khoya makes it tastier. but it is completely optional.

furthermore, i would like to highlight some easy tips, suggestions and variations for carrot kheer recipe. firstly, i would heavily recommend using fresh and red coloured (indian carrot) grated carrots for a creamy and rich kheer recipe. in this, i have used the orange coloured carrot as i did not have access to the red coloured ones. secondly, i have used a medium sized grater to grate the carrots. do not use the fine grater as the carrots can dissolve while boiling it in milk. lastly, you can serve it warm or chilled based on your taste preference. i personally like the chilled one topped with vanilla ice cream scoop.
