Indian-Style Carrot Pudding With Yogurt
Vicki Butts (lazyme)
In India and Pakistan cooks take advantage of carrots' natural sweetness by using them in desserts. Gajar Halwa is made by simmering carrots with raisins and milk until their sugars become very concentrated. This no-fuss version of this pudding-like treat features the golden color and rich flavor of carrots perfumed with cardamom. Serve this dessert warm, topped with yogurt and a sprinkling of chopped, pale green pistachios. It is the perfect end to a light meal.

How to Make Indian-Style Carrot Pudding With Yogurt
- In a medium skillet, melt butter. Saute carrots until they are limp, about 5 minutes.
- Stir in milk and water. Mix in raisins and cardamom. Simmer until carrots are soft and nearly all liquid has evaporated, about 20 minutes.
- Divide carrot mixture among 8 ramekins or small custard cups, letting it cool to lukewarm.
- Spoon 2 tablespoons of yogurt over each portion of pudding and serve. Alternatively, cool, cover and refrigerate pudding. When ready to serve, re-heat slightly in microwave.
