Gajar Ka Sharbet (sweet Carrot Juice)

You must have had’ Gajar ka halwa’ many times in your life but have you ever heard of Gajar ka sherbet. When my cousin Reena offered me this sarbet for the first time, I was a little skeptical. I was actually expecting Gajar ka juice (she must have simply put the carrots in the blender to extract juice), but I was wrong. The pinkish color of the juice was the biggest mystery for me. I could not stop myself and took a sip. It was sweet, milky and had the flavor of cardamom…. A lot more different from what I thought. If you too want to know the reason of this difference, read below
