Happy Ganesh Chaturthi to all my readers!
Carrot Burfi or Gajar ki Barfi is yet another quick sweet you can make for festivals. I have used khoya and condensed milk. You can use milk as well, though it is more time consuming. There are so many ways to make this sweet. I kept it simple as I had planned for a list to be done for the festivals.
So made with just a cup of grated carrots and I got about 5 to 6 small squares. Of course, making in huge volume takes time and laborious as well. I prefer to keep it to 1 cup always as kids don’t eat it and after hubby dear’s share, I will still have for my colleagues. As expected this burfi was a hit and I was planning on tweaking the recipe to make into a new one soon.
The Khoya added to this makes it very rich and addictive. Do try it yourself if you have khoya on hand. Else you can use milk powder along with condensed milk. I might be doing it soon as well!
