I have posted 7 cup sweet with coconut earlier and wanted to try some variance to it. Sweets like Mysore pak need such precision and I always get tensed making them during festivities. This is an easy sweet and you just can’t go wrong with it. Carrots have natural sweetness and adds a nice colour to the sweet. You can call this as an Indian version of a fudge 🙂
The key to making this sweet is the consistency….You can even increase sweetness as per your taste.
Do read the complete recipe and notes before you start making this moth-watering sweet. So, try making this sweet for this festival season and enjoy with your family 🙂

Author: Priya Shiva
Recipe type: Sweet
- Bengal gram flour/ besan/Chickpeas flour - 1 cup
- Ghee/Clarified Butter - 1½ cup (melted)
- Grated carrot - 1 cup
- Milk - 1 cup
- Sugar - 2 +½ cups
- Green cardamom - 2
- Grease a square plate with ghee and keep it aside.
- Remove the seeds of green cardamom from the pods and powder it.
- Saute carrot for few minutes in a pan so that the raw smell leaves from it.
- Add all ingredients in a heavy bottom pan and mix it well and make sure there are no lumps.
- Place the pan on the gas stove on low flame and stir continuously for few minutes on low heat.
- Now you'll start seeing it bubbling and ghee leaving on sides. Add cardamom powder and keep stirring.
- When it starts becoming like a dough transfer the content into the ghee greased plate and leave it for few minutes.
- When it is still warm cut it into square pieces and when it cools down keep it in an air tight container.
Use non-stick pan if you are beginner and always sieve gram flour before using for sweets or snack.
