Carrot and Almond Kheer - Microwave Oven Method

Another session of Blogging Marathon has started and I am here with a simple and flavorful kheer.For this series of BM I chose to cook with alphabets in different cooking methods.
For the day 1 the alphabet is C and sharing you a kheer or milk recipe made in microwave oven.I have already shared a version of carrot kheer but this version is slightly different and no need of condensed milk or evaporated milk.
I made this kheer along with the soaked almonds and the output is so yummy and delicious.You can try the same method in the stove top also.Wth no further delay lets move on to the recipe.................................

Basic Information

Preparation time ~15 minutes
Cooking time ~ 20-25 minutes
Serves ~ 2


Carrot(grated)1 cup
Sugar/sarkarai1/2 cup + 1tbs
2% Milk/paal21/4 cups
Cardamom powder/elakkai1/4 tsp
Saffron/kungumapoofew strands
Ghee/nei2 tsp
Pisatchios/pistaas needed for garnishing

                            In a microwave safe bowl boil the milk for 8-10 minutes and soak the almonds for 15 minutes in hot water and peel the skin and keep it aside.
In a microwave safe bowl heat 1/2 tsp of ghee for a minute,then add the grated carrot and cook it for 2 minutes.Now add 1/4 cup of milk. 

Cook it for 2 minutes or till it becomes soft.Let it cool for couple of minutes.Now put the cooked carrot and soaked almonds in a blender and grind it to a fine paste.

Add a tsp of ghee in the same microwave bowl and heat it for a minute then add in the ground paste and cook it for a minute.Now add the sugar and let it cook for another 2-3 minutes.

Add in the milk and cook it for another 5 minutes.In between stir it for couple of times.Finally add the cardamom powder and saffron strands and give it a mix.

Serve it chilled.


  • The cooking time varies from oven to oven.
  • If you want to use sweetened condensed milk,add around 3 tbs and reduce the sugar quantity.
  • Cashews can also be added along with almonds.
  • Use a deep,wide mouth,microwave safe bowl to avoid spilling.
