Sheema Mullangi Ladoo (carrot Ladoo)

Ladoo is my all time favourite dessert. In fact, my family also loves sweets a lot. I wanted to give a try for a variety ladoo using carrot and it worked out. This is a yummy and variety dessert that is easy to make. If you like carrot halwa, you will definitely love this ladoo too.

Add the grated carrots to the remaining ghee and stir it continuously for 2-3 minutes
Add milk to it and allow the carrots to get cooked in low flame. Stir in between
After 5-10 minutes, milk will get absorbed into carrots. Stir continuously to prevent sticking onto the bottom of the vessel
