I have always found many similarities between the flavors of Indian cooking and those I grew up tasting in my Mami’s cocina. Cilantro, garlic and onions are central to the savory dishes and cinnamon, cloves and condensed milk can be found in many of the desserts. I was pleasantly surprised- maybe you are too!
This recipe was inspired by a carrot dessert that I tried at an Indian restaurant that reminded me of Mami’s arroz con leche. I was able to easily recreate the flavors because they feature prominently in my childhood memories.
If your family enjoys carrots, you’ll love them cooked in this sweet, creamy mixture. Eat it warm or cold, whichever you prefer.
