I tried this recipe exactly the way Trupti has directed and it turned out absolutely delicious. Rated 5+ for sure. I know that Carrot and milk are great from health, just keep the sugar low and you are talking about a health to avergae food instead of party food.

I did a quick google seems rather popular! I must give it a try! Some recipes call for kewra water which gives a nice fragrance and flavour. Shanti/Mary-Anne
