  • 4 cups grated carrots
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • a pinch of cardamom seeds, finely powdered
  • 1/2 cup powdered almonds

  • Heat oil in a non-stick pan and fry the grated carrots till it gives out all of its moisture, and starts to turn into a deeper colour. Be careful to stir often, so as not to let it burn.

  • Add in powdered almonds and fry till blended well, stirring often.
  • Toss in sliced almonds, and serve warm with a dollop of Vanilla ice cream.
