The 3 Ingredient carrot Kheer is quick & easy to make this recipe with just carrots, milk and cardamom with or without sugar (preferred for babies under 12 months) and optionally nuts added. I highly recommend using fresh carrots and using an instant pot to steam them. It is a great recipe to make for an occasion and is loved by kids with its orange color and sweet taste.

My little one gobbles it without complaining. And it is a great way to introduce self feeding by giving it in a tumbler. You can choose to make this using almond milk for babies who is not introduced to dairy or to make it vegan. Make this simple carrot payasa with just a few ingredients available in your pantry.

What do you need to make 3 ingredient carrot payasa?

All you need to make this recipe are:

  • Carrot – Use generous amount of carrots. Being a main ingredient carrot adds color and taste to this recipe. I have used 2 big carrots in this recipe.
  • Milk – You can add whole milk or condensed milk or almond milk as per your preference. Milk makes carrot kheer thick and creamy. I have used 2 cups of whole milk in this recipe.
  • Sugar – It is optional to use sugar. Carrots are generally sweet so even without sugar this carrot kheer tastes good. I have added 1/2 a cup of sugar in this recipe.
  • Cardamom – Cardamom adds a nice flavor to kheer. A pinch of powdered cardamom is added.
  • Nuts – I use a bunch of almonds soaked in water and made a ground paste to make the payasam creamy and healthy. You can also choose to add powdered nuts (almonds, pistachios, cashews) on top while serving.
