I used red carrots for this recipe. They are bigger in size compared to the regular carrots. So, if you are using regular carrots, use 4-5 medium - large size ones.
In the original recipe, raisins are also used. Also, raisins and cashew nuts are fried before adding carrots and kept aside.
I used pistachios and I didnt fry them. I added it in the end along with cardamom.
I used ghee for this recipe.
You can add more or less dates to suit your preferred sweetness.
