This preparation can be directly done on flame in that case first sauté the carrots in butter then boil the carrots in ½ litter milk. Keep on medium flame and in between keep stirring so that it does not get burnt. When the whole thing is practically dried up add the sugar and constantly keep stirring. After switching off the flame put the pudding in a serving bowl and garnish.
