Note– Please read recipe notes in the end.

Main Equipment Used

Steps In Making

  1. Peel the carrots and cut them into long or round pieces.
  2. Bring water to a boil.
  3. Now add sugar and mix till it dissolves completely. This will add little sweetness to the carrots and also help them retain its red colour.
  4. Carefully add the carrots to the water and boil them on high heat for exactly 3 minutes. Do not over boil them.
  5. Once done, with the help of a strainer remove them and immediately transfer them in ice-cold water. This will immediately stop the cooking process of the peas and also help retain its red colour.
  6. Let them rest in the ice-cold water for 2 minutes and then strain them out. Remove all the excess water.
  7. Transfer the carrots to a kitchen towel and spread them evenly. Let them dry completely under a fan. It might take 20-30 minutes.
  8. Once dried transfer them in a zip log bag and fill till 3/4th and seal it tightly. You can alternatively store them in airtight containers too.
  9. Store in the freezer for up to 6 months.

Recipe Notes
