HOW TO MAKE GAJAR KA MURRABA: DELICIOUS SPICY CARROT CONSERVE
GAJAR KA MURRABA – CARROT CONSERVE
This is a spicy conserve which is really delicious and easy to make, although it does take a long time to cook. However you don’t have to watch it too much.
2 glasses of sugar
6 green cardamoms
2 sticks cinnamon
½ inch piece of ginger, peeled but whole
2 tbsps lemon juice
2 tbsps white vinegar
2 tbsps rose water
Prick the carrot pieces all over with a skewer so that the syrup can go into them.
Put 6 glasses of water in a pan with the sugar and carrots; stir well so that the sugar is mixed in the water.
When the water starts to boil add all the other ingredients.
Cover the pan and cook over a low heat, until the syrup hangs from a metal spoon in one thread.
This takes between 2 or 3 hours as the heat should be very low.
Allow the mixture to cool then store in airtight jars. Store in a cool dark place. You can use the syrup for the next batch when you finish the conserve.
This has Taste and is a Treat.
