Carrot Kums

Carrot Kums - Doesn't the name sound interesting? This was a completely new Dessert to me! Never even heard or had the slightest clue about such a dish. I happened to see this in a television cookery show 'Swad' in Jaihind TV. Per the show, it is a specialty of the Kannur area. Anyways the name made me inquisitive and I had to try this out. It came out excellent! I have made some slight changes to the measurements of the recipe.


Carrot- 1 cup (Grated)
Eggs- 4
Milk Powder- 6 tbsp
Sugar- 7 tbsp
Cardamom- 3 pods
Salt- a pinch
Ghee- 1/2 tbsp
Raisins- to garnish

1. In a mixer, grind the Carrot to an almost smooth paste. Do not add any water.
2. To this paste, add eggs, milk powder, salt and sugar and blend well.
3. Add Cardamom to the blended mixture.
4. Heat ghee in a pan and pour this mixture into the pan. Heat should be set to a little less than medium.
5. Close the pan and cook for 6-7 minutes.
6. Check to see if the kums is cooked well.
7. Decorate it with Raisins.


It is a great dessert that can be prepared in a jiffy and a good way to get carrot into your diet.
