Directions

Put the carrots, cheese, raisins, pistachios, cardamom, cloves, milk, and honey into a large saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce the heat to low and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the carrots are soft and the mixture has thickened, about 15 to 18 minutes. Serve the carrots warm.

    I made this, today, and it was wonderful. It's mildly sweet, yet you don't lose the flavor of the carrots. It was my first time cooking with cardamom and I love the spice. This dish could easily be a nice, warm breakfast.

    This recipe has different measurements than the one found in "Bal's Quick & Healthy Indian" cookbook, plus the addition of ricotta cheese. The one from the book tastes good but ended up soupy and never did firm up. I think this one is much better.
