Carrot Nurukku Gothambu Payasam/ Carrot Daliya Kheer

It is Onam today… we normally don’t celebrate Onam towards our side. However, the long banana plantains adorned with innumerable varieties of vegetarian delicacies, that is to be washed down with a small banana, some sharakara varatti and a couple of payasams are too good to ignore. That is why every Onam we make sure to get a couple of “Onasadyas” from the nearby restaurant and devour them to the fullest. Not to mention the sleep that comes after having such a heavy meal… I so clearly remember the Onam when I was carrying Azza. It fell during Ramadan, I wasn’t fasting due to my physical condition. A friend of mine was also carrying at that time as well, so we always shared each other’s pregnancy depressions and ups-downs during that time. I tracked down a restaurant near to my office that was arranging parcelled Onasadya and booked two meals for pickup the next day. I got them on the way back home from office and landed up at her home to deliver her parcel, quickly coming back to home to have mine. We couldn’t eat together as I was already late after work but though we ate separately, we were constantly messaging each other about how good the meal tasted and how heavy we were feeling. Those memories are really fresh and so is the taste of that awesome sadya… πŸ™‚

Sharing with you a payasam that I had made sometime back but reserved it for this occasion… I always love some twists to my payasams, so here is a nurukku gothambu/ daliya/ broken wheat payasam, with the goodness of carrots and coconut milk! Off to the way I made it…
We rarely find these reddish orange Indian carrots here…
