Instructions
  • 1. The carrots must be grated finely. If it is too big, then the carrot might not cook properly.
  • 2. A heavy-bottomed pan or a non-stick pan can be used for the kheer to be made quickly and for it to cook evenly.
  • 3. Make sure the malai does not stick to the sides of the pan while cooking. The malai will add to the thickness of the kheer and hence it should not remain on the sides.
