Coco-carrot milkshake

      A sudden travel due to my father-in-law's upcoming bypass surgery rattled my world.  He was a regular walker and on top of that, an authentic vegetarian too!  Only God knows why such healthy body has to face an terrible operation!  Though  people casually say to each other, 'Come on, bypass surgery has nowadays become an common option, many do so', the pain you feel when your dear ones had to face is very infinite.  But, all thanks to Almighty, surgery went fine and he has shifted to ICU.  Will get back to my place soon after he discharges from hospital.  These times, I really feel to stick to chennai, most importantly to my family.  But, neverthless, shama had to work at hydi and varsha must school somewhere there.  She is really enjoying herself at her grandma's residance.  Playing with (cousin)brother, picking and dropping him to school, sleeping with uncle & aunty she really has an nice time here.

   And yes, coming back to our blog, you all know am an member of Potluck party, cyber style.  For july month's challenge, I was paired with Jagruti mam.  I had to redo the yummy milkshake she made.  But very sorry that I was not able to make up to the time.  So here it is coco-carrot milkshake from my part.

Ingredients required

  • 3/4 cup grated coconut
  • 1 cup grated carrot
  • 1 tbspn oil
  • 2 cup milk
  • 3 tbspn sugar
  • 1 cup vanilla ice-cream (I bought two cups of vanilla from Arun icecream)


 In  a kadaai, heat oil and dry roast coconut and carrot.  After two minutes, add milk and sugar, keep stirring.  Remove from stove after seven minutes and blend them very well.  Strain the mixture.  Reserve very few of the strained part for garnish.
Pour the liquid, top with balls of vanilla ice-cream.  Garnish with grated carrot, and serve chilled.

The remaining filtered mixture can be utilised in many ways.  You can grind them into fine paste and add in dessert (like carrot halwa, payasam)
Without grinding, they can be utilised as a stuffing in parathas
They can be used in bread-making also.


  1. delicious and yummy shake. hope your FIL recover soon and well and you get back to your routine.
