CARROT RECIPE - CARROT SWEET / TOFFEE

                  Carrot is a versatile vegetable that can be used as a savory addition as well as for delicious sweet desserts. The high level of sugar content in carrots, makes them unique and  healthy alternative to other sweeteners.
                 I always prefer Carrots for dessert due to its versatile nature , its tempting color and moreover its healthy.  Carrot halwa, Carrot pudding, Carrot kheer, Carrot cake, Carrot kesari,  Carrot laddoo, Carrot muffins, etc.. are some of the common desserts with carrot.
               Today iam sharing here an easy carrot toffee, that looks like baby carrot and of course yet another wonderful  outstanding dessert . So lets see how to make this yummy sweet using carrots. ENJOY!!!!








INGREDIENTS
Carrots                                                          - 4 nos, grated
Desiccated coconut / dry roasted coconut    - 4 tbsp
Sugar                                                             - 3 tbsp ( as carrot is                                                                  sweet, always use less sweet)
Unsalted butter                                              - 1 tsp, melted

  • Crush the grated carrot in the smallest jar of the mixie. Do not add water.
  • Heat a pan and dry roast the crushed carrot in a medium flame for 3 minutes. Give a slow stir.
  • Add sugar and continue stirring till it gets caramelized.  Now add desiccated coconut, cardamon powder and mix well.
