Carrot Cake

Carrots ..carrots here a carrot there a carrot ..:D

Come winters and sabji mandis are flooded with Carrots(delhi gajar). There are lot of carrot reciepes ..right from salads, koshimbirs, soups, and desserts. I prefer having it as a dessert for its  natural sweetness and ofcourse soft texture…color not to be forgotten.
