2.    Take some cashew nuts, almonds, pista and raisins. Mix them and keep them aside.
3.    Grate the washed carrots with medium size grater (not too thick and not too thin)
4.    Take a big pan and add the milk to boil.
5.    Next, add the grated carrots and mix them well.


6.    Now, we need to cook this for about an hour. This step will take maximum amount of time. Make sure you keep mixing it after every few minutes or so.
