Karnataka Style Carrot Haalu / Carrot Milk

With summer starting off at Bangalore, we are looking at a hot, dry summer this year. With the summer, all the cool drinks, smoothies, popsicles come out to help us deal with the heat.

The carrot milk is my mother’s speciality, it’s something she always makes during summer. When I used to come home all red and dehydrated after spending the whole mornings playing in the sun, there would be nothing more refreshing than a  glass of cold carrot milk to get me all charged up to go back outside and play.
