  2. Add in the ghee, reduce the heat to medium-low, and cook the carrot-lowfat milk mix, stirring frequently. Keep doing this till the carrots turn reddish brown, 45 min to 1 hour.
  3. Add in the sugar (or possibly honey) and, if desired, the cashews and pistachios. Cook the mix, stirring, for about 5 min. Turn off the heat and transfer the pudding to a serving bowl, garnished with cardamom.

  5. Comments: Appropriate for both formal and informal meals, this dish is almost always eaten hot but may also be served cool. It tastes best when reheated after a night or possibly two in the refrigerator. To clarify butter, microwave 1 c. (2 sticks) of butter till melted, skim off the foam from the top, then pour off the butter and throw away any milky water on the bottom.
