1. Always cook any kheer on low flame and also make use of non stick pans and sauce pan for making dessert recipes.
2. Since most of the dessert recipes are made using milk, please make sure to make them on low flames and make use of non stick cookware.
3. Kheer recipes taste good if served hot or cool and I would suggest to store this carrot kheer in refrigerator for atleast an hour before serving it in sweet bowls.
