Carrot Payasam/Kheer(Microwave Method)

                                            Wishing you a Happy Tamil New Year and Vishu

Carrot payasam is a yet another simple,flavorful and delicious sweet which can be made in microwave oven as well as stove top.Today I am going to share the microwave method which I feel easy and convenient.Here follows the recipe...........


Evaporated Milk(optional)1/2cup
Condensed milk1/4cup
Cardamom/ellakai Powder1/2tsp
Pistachios(optional)for garnishing

                            In a microwave safe bowl boil the milk for 8-10 minutes and fry the cashews in 1/2tsp of ghee,keep aside.
  • In another microwave safe bowl heat 1/2 tsp of ghee for a minute,then add the grated carrot and cook it for 2minutes.
  • Add 1/2 cup of milk and cook it for 2 minutes or till it becomes soft.
  • Once the cooked carrot becomes cool put it in a blender and make it to a fine paste.In the same bowl heat a tsp of ghee and cook the ground carrots for 2minutes,stir in between.
  •  Then add the sugar and milk,cook it for 3-4 minutes.Now add the evaporated milk,condensed milk,boil it for 2-3minutes.
  • Finally add the roasted cashews and cardamom powder.
  • Serve it warm or cold.


  • Adding evaporated milk is purely optional,if you r not using it can be substituted with regular milk.
  • Saffron can also be added for extra flavor.
  • If you want the kheer to be creamy and rich,grind 5-6 soaked almonds along with the carrots.
  • I used the cheese grater to grate the carrot which cooks faster.
  • Use a deep,wide mouth  microwave safe bowl to avoid spilling.
